Airlines Stinson A NC15108
As indicated in the
narrative for the prior entry, photographs of Central Airlines Stinson
rare. This shot, from the album of Dan
Shelton, was probably taken at Pittsburgh, circa 1935.
The U.S. Air Mail A.M.14 titling
appears on the nose. This 457 mile long route ran from Wash-
ington D.C. to Detroit. So far as
I can tell, they were used after the merger with Pennsylvania
Airlines (forming Pennsylvania Central
Airlines) until about 1938 by which time PCA replaced
them with Boeing 247-Ds.
