Seeking anyone who may have been stationed at any one of these facilities
who can recall tail numbers of FH-227's which operated there. Perhaps you
were a flight crew member who can recall.

Many thanks,
Marc Chenevert

FH227's were not assigned to a particular route. All FH227s went thru those stations. Some stayed on the Norfolk served routes a long time before being returned to INT for a check but another airplane took it's place.
The tail numbers are listed on this web site and the Pacemaker name.

It was the same for every aircraft type.....
There were particular aircraft types assigned to routes, but not
particular aircraft #s.
Example, 727s were flight series 1-99, so any single or two diget
flight number on a route would be a 727.
Each 727 or 737 eventually made it through every station that
had that aircraft type on it's schedules.
One exception to that was when we got the 727-200 Long Range
from PSA and Western.....those 6 were assigned
to the west coast routes, flight #s 1-9.
737-200s were flight series 200-499.
737-300s flight series 500-599.
F28s 700-899.
Those were the good ole days!

Ronald and Steve:

Ronald, thanks for sharing your information. I was not aware that all of the
FH-227's eventually covered all of these stations. That solves my dilemma!

Steve, yes, I remember the days when you knew a Piedmont aircraft type
simply by the flight number. I also remember when the FH-227's were
flight series 200-299 and YS-11's were 900-999.

Again, thanks for sharing your thoughts. At present, I am drawing a PI
YS-11--N274P (Tennessee Valley Pacemaker) from a photo I took in 1974
while it was parked on the ramp at LYH. The old paint still looks good!

Marc
