Anybody Remember Cochise Airlines?

Sat Jun 23, 2001 7:23 pm

I recall flying on Cochise many years ago. Horribly rough flight. White-knuckle time for me, I can tell ya!!
But we did have bad weather around Flagstaff.

Anybody else familiar with this airline?

From the info I can find on-line, it appears the airline operated from 1972-1980.

Take a look at these old collector's items (anybody got these timetables?) .....................

I remember they used to fly into Prescott about the time they ended service. I believe their fleet consisted of Cessna 402s, Metroliners, and Convair 440s.

The only two pictures of Cochise on this website:

This is at their TUS hangar... it appears to be on the NE quadrant of the airport... north of the terminal, but certainly south of the ANG ramp and RWY 3/21

Awfully long ride in a Metro to LAX... hope they didn't start in PHX or TUS.
