Southern Airways  Swearingen SA-226TC Metroliner II  N70A           (c/n  TC241)

                                      When the Martins were finally disposed of, and the airline became an all DC-9 outfit, certain stations
                                       were too small in which to profitably run pure jet service and hence a  small fleet of eight Metroliners
                                       was acquired in 1977.  N70A is seen in typical pose on the ramp at Hartsfield in July of 1978 in this
                                       nice shot by Mick Bajcar.  The Metroliners were sold off when the airline merged with North Central
                                       to become Republic in 1979.
