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

American Flyers Airline (AFA) was a United States "supplemental" charter airline that operated from 1949 to 1971. The airline initially commenced operations in Fort Worth with DC-3 aircraft. From 1960 to 1967 it took delivery of fifteen Lockheed Constellation and Lockheed l-188 Electra propeller aircraft. In 1960, it began equipping itself with jet aircraft, starting with two Boeing 727. The American Flyers 727s made history by being the first airframes of the 727 type to operate transatlantic flights, from the mainland US to London Gatwick and Manchester in the United Kingdom, and to Frankfurt, Germany.
By 1970, American Flyers Airline was operating just two leased Douglas DC-8-63CF having sold the Lockheed l-188 Electras and later the 727s. AFA was taken over by Universal Airlines on May 1971, which in turn was absorbed by Saturn Airways the next year. Its DC-8s went to Flying Tiger Line.
