Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

On April 17, 1968, three "local service" airlines in the western U.S. merged to form Air West: Pacific Air Lines, Bonanza Airlines and West Coast Airlines. The initial Air West fleet included Boeing 727-100s, Douglas DC-9-10s, Fairchild F-27s, and Piper Navajos. The first new addition to the Air West fleet was a Douglas DC-9-30 which had been ordered by Bonanza Airlines.
The fleet had several colours liveries: brown/red, green/blue, blue/brown, purple/red...
Hungry for another adventure in the airline industry, TWA's former owner Howard Hughes sought the airline in 1968, and the deal was finalized in 1970. The airline was renamed Hughes Air West and its call sign became "Hughes Air." It expanded to several cities in the western United States, Canada and Mexico. With the new yellow paint scheme, unveiled 28 September 1971, the airline began calling itself Hughes Airwest, two words instead of the initial three word name.
