Vercoa Air Service    Beechcraft  99 N317VA                  (c/n  U-72)


                                        Vercoa (Vermillion County Air Service) was established as an FBO in Danville, Ill in the 1950s
                                        and in 1956 was taken over by William and Marilyn Britt in 1956.  Scheduled services between
                                        Danville and Chicago commenced in 1964.   In 1968 Vercoa began a contract with Allegheny
                                        Airlines and became part of Allegheny Commuter Services to provide service between the two
                                        afore-mentioned stations.  It was one of the three original lines (the others were Henson Aviation
                                        and Pocono Airlines) to operate as Allegheny Commuter.  Seen here are two shots from the Gary
