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

GW/GWA/GOLDEN WEST.

Golden West Airlines was founded in 1968 and operated a fleet of de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter and Messerschmitt Bolkow Blohm HFB-320 Hansa Jet aircraft, serving Pomona, Riverside, Santa Ana, and Ventura. This airline ceased operations on March 11, 1969. A rival company, Aero Commuter acquired several assets from Golden West, including its name, continued to expand aggressively through the 1970s, adding service to many airports of California. In 1971, Golden West did acquire Catalina Air Lines, a seaplane operator that served Catalina Island off the coast of southern California with the Grumman G-21 Goose. These Grumman amphibious aircraft were operated as Catalina Golden West which was a division of Golden West. By the early 1980s, Golden West was the largest commuter airline in California, with a heavy schedule from LAX to Santa Barbara and San Diego. Its fleet had grown to include larger aircraft such as the Short 330 and de Havilland Canada DHC-7 Dash 7 which was the largest aircraft ever operated by the airline. A huge debt service, among other factors, drove Golden West Airlines out of business in April 1983.

This page lists all films, TV series, and video games that feature aircraft of Golden West Airlines.
