Altair Airlines Aerospatiale (Nord Aviation)
In 1976 Altair acquired seven Nord 262s from Cimber Air in
Europe (some were Danish registered,
some German). N481A above, seen here in this nice shot by Howard
Chaloner at Liberty International
Airport, Newark, NJ in
April 1979, was formerly D-CIMB (and OY-BDL, I-SARL before that).
Of the 110 machines of this type built at Bourges,
France some 40 or so wound up in service in the
U.S., the most
notable customer being Lake Central.
