Flying the Blue Skies


Author(s):
Abstract:
At the Wilmington airport on February 20, 1948, Piedmont Airlines founder Tom Davis watched the first flight of his fledgling airline take off. Davis was almost 30, and his airline consisted of three used DC-3 airplanes and 250 employees. Forty years later Piedmont was one of the nation's largest airlines before its acquisition and merger with USAir in the late 1980s.
