Blog followers request


Good morning everyone! I've acquired a FINE DVD of a promotional film about North Central Airlines from a fellow fan (who had it converted from reel film) recently and have a simple question for the followers of the blog; HOW DO I ADD IT TO YOUTUBE??? This being, I'm technology 'savvy' persay but as to this process, I'm lost! I'd love to be able to share this film with the blog but need a little help. If you've an idea or a suggestion, please let me know! Thanks everyone. :) Peder

Annual Reports Part Twentythree






We're getting closer to the end of the Annual Reports! Alas, I'm still on the hunt/lookout for a few from the 1950's I still need. :) In any event, enjoy this posting of 1977 with a nice view of the General Offices on the last page.

Revisiting MKE...



About a month ago, my friend Arron from MKE had sent in his stories and photos of growing up around MKE (Convair's 727's and MKE posting) and we return to MKE today. Two new photos from Arron highlight the old North Central Terminal as it's seen today along with the original plaque that adorned the entrance to the then new terminal in 1970. It's great to see MKE officials have put it up again! Enjoy.

Old Airport Terminals



Hello all! Recently I received a nice email from a blog viewer and fellow Herman fan named James. James runs an interesting and vastly illustrated website called 'Old Airport Terminals.' It's definitely worth a look! Some projects he's working on are the old terminals at Duluth, MN. as well as Rapid City, SD. If any of our viewers have photos, information or stories about these, or other old terminals, please let him know! Here's the link:

I've included a couple of photos from James' site; Chicago Midway and Fargo. If you look real close to the MDW photo, you'll see a 'NOR' DC-3 on the tarmac!

Interesting finds...and ideas





Hello everyone! Once in a while, I, like many of us I believe, 'cruise' the internet for anything and everything that's of interest to us. Typing in NORTH CENTRAL AIRLINES or CONVAIR 580 on Google or Ask or even Yahoo has yielded some interesting finds! Try it some time. Here are a few examples of 'finds' I've made.
These are scale models that someone has created that can cause double takes! Yep, that's an Electra with NCA colors folks...:) Enjoy!
