Pacific International Airways  Fairchild 71  NC10624                   (c/n  648)


                                     Certainly PIA did not standardize on their livery in the short life (1931 -1932) of the company.
                                     They were a big user of the Fairchild 71, however, which is probably why it was so appealing to
                                     Pan American to amalgamate the line with Alaskan Airways who also had a similar fleet.   The
                                     identity of the second machine in the shot below is unknown, but I suspect the bottom image depicts
                                     NC10624 again with a different livery.  All three photographs are from the historic archives of the
