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

BWIA International Airways logo
BW/BWA/WEST INDIAN.

BWIA started operations as British West Indian Airways in 1940 with Lockheed Lodestar airplanes. In 1947, BWIA was taken over by BSAA - British South American Airways, after a few months operating as British International Air Lines the BWIA name was restored in 1948 for operating routes among the Caribbean Islands using Vickers Viking airliners. In 1949, BSAA merged with BOAC and BWIA became a subsidiary of BOAC. Vickers Viscount were introduced in 1955. For BWIA the jet age began in 1964 with the introduction of new Boeing 707 jetliners. BWIA became BWIA International Airways in 1980 after a merger with Trinidad and Tobago Air Services (which had been formed by the government in June 1974), becoming the national airline. BWIA aircraft livery had the 'Trinidad and Tobago Airways' adjacent to the BWIA International after the merger. The same year also saw the Boeing 707 replaced on the London service with long range Lockheed L-1011-500 TriStar wide body jetliners. In 1986, BWIA bought its first McDonnell Douglas MD-83. By 1994, the airline ordered Airbus A321 and Airbus A340 jets. In 1999, BWIA Internantional Airways changed to BWIA West Indies Airways and its livery to a new Caribbean green and blue color scheme with its famous steelpan trademark, the national musical instrument of its home base.
