USAir BAC1-11 Retirement date

Thu Jun 23, 2016 5:57 pm

Can someone please clarify when US actually finally retired it's 1-11 fleet?

Most fleet lists show May 89... however some US and OAG timetables show them in service as late as October. I cannot find an in service pic after about March 89.

Did US move the retirement date up and not update their timetables (ill assume they subbed in D9S or 732s in that case) or are the fleet lists wrong? I don't have a JP for 89 or that might clear it up.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
