Catalina Vegas Airlines  de Havilland D.H.104 Dove 6A     N4041B       (c/n 04385)


                                     As the name suggests, this airline provided service from North Las Vegas Airport to Catalina
                                     Island, with a stop at Palm Springs, California, where this shot was taken in 1960.   It owned
                                     a couple of D.H. Doves and the odd Beech 18 or two.  In the mid 1960s the airline shifted its
                                     operation to link San Diego and Orange County Airport (now John Wayne) with Catalina, pulling
                                     out of Las Vegas completely.  This was later expanded to include Tijuana, Mexico.  Oddly, it did
                                     not change its name at that time.   N4041B was originally imported from Canada (ex CF-GBW)
                                     and went on to serve with Air Wisconsin in the mid 1960s.  It was written off in a crash at Moses
                                     Lake, Washington in 1973 when an engine failed on take off and the prop did not feather.
