1970 ROA Schedule Question
Posted by: ROA_AL ()
Date: August 23, 2009 02:32PM

I was a kid from ROA in the 70's and part of my love of aviation came from hearing YS-11s fly over the house. I collected quite a few timetables from back then, luckily they survived the years. Something I noticed about PI's ROA schedule I have always wondered about.

There was a flight scheduled to Winston-Salem from Roanoke, daily, that departed ROA at 11:15 pm. Flight 25. That seems kind of late to fly folks from Roanoke to Winston. Flight 25 originated in LGA, I think. But, that still seems kind of late to serve Winston.

Also, there was a 7:30 am departure from Winston to Roanoke, daily, flight 2. That flight continued to DCA. That's pretty early for those days.

Was there a reason for these flights other than passenger service?

Ooops, excuse the thread title - the topic is about 1970's question and not specifically about the 1970 schedule. Sorry.

Remember that a lot of planes went to INT back then for overnight maintenance. ROA also had a much smaller maintenance base, but INT was the airline's primary maintenance facility.

Many of those late night and early morning flights flew with precious few, and occasionally no, passengers.

Times have changed a thousand-fold from those days. Back then, the CAB mandated which airline could operate which routes and there were some profit protection measures in place to ensure airline stability and long term health. Airlines routinely operated flights well below 50% load factor and made fantastic profits back then.

Many other carriers, like PI, had quirky schedules that would make no sense in today's market.

DL, in an effort to get maximum utilization out of its fleet, for DECADES offered special fares for late night flying -- a flight would leave New Orleans at, say, 1:45am and arrive Dallas or Oklahoma City at 3:07am.

I have a B&W photo of the ROA ramp around 1970 -- it was an early morning photo taken from the ATC tower. There are NINE PI aircraft on that ramp! YS-11s, 737s, and 2 727-100s! Those were the days!

Boy, I would love to see that B&W of the ROA ramp. Is it posted anywhere for internet viewing?

It is not. It's in my personal collection and probably filed away deep in the recesses of my PI files! I'll promise to try to unearth it in the weeks to come and post it on an online photo sharing site. I'm on a long term work assignment away from home most of the time, so my spare time is very thin these days .. please be patient!
