East-West Airlines 59

East-West Airlines

East-West Airlines was founded in Tamworth, New South Wales in 1947. It operated to major regional city-centres and connected these centres to various state capitals, and by the 1980s it was Australia's third largest domestic airline.

 

East-West operated DC-3s between 53 and 73, operating Avro Ansons before that and Fokker F-27s and F-28s afterwards before finally operating Boeing jets. Ultimately the airline was absorbed into Ansett in 93.

 

The flights below were all operated by DC-3s and come from the November 59 timetable from www.timetableimages.com .
