Boeing 737-800 (N26215)


Sorry, I don't know the aircraft type. If someone could help me, I will put it in. Anyway, Allegheny Commuter craft taxiing at KDCA circa 1966-68

Skyhawkrg, this is a Nord 262. The reg number of this one is N26215. (The reg numbers of Allegheny's Nords all started with "N262xx.") In the later 60s, Allegheny had purchased Fairchilds and right around the same time, Lake Central Airlines decided to retire their noisy and slow, but dependable, old DC-3s and go with propjets. LCA bought Nord 262s. Unfortunately for LCA, the first variation of Nords had engines that tended to disintegrate. And they did ... more than once. Lake Central was forced to discontinue using their new Nord fleetbirds and shove their noisy and slow, but dependable, old DC-3s back into service while the Nords were reengined. Lake Central, struggling to stay afloat while awaiting the reengined Nords, got their "new" Nords back but it was too late. The entire mess had decimated LCA's $$books and the LCA tent was crashing down. Allegheny bought LCA and, in the process, acquired LCA's Nords. Allegheny flew them but scrapped them as soon as possible. (As an interesting sidenote, the acquisition of Lake Central by Allegheny was the first step in Allegheny's "expansion." Allegheny later pulled off a somewhat hostile purchase of Mohawk Airlines. Mohawk's founder Robert Peach committed suicide because of it, but his estate retained ownership of the Mohawk Airlines name. So many years later, after Allegheny had reorganized as US Air and then US Airways and then rolled out their Allegheny, Piedmont, PSA, and America West heritage liverybirds, many folks wondered why there wasn't / isn't a Mohawk Airlines liverybird. The answer is that US Airways was never able to obtain legal rights to the name "Mohawk Airlines."

Just some reminiscing; The land area behind the vertical stabilizer is Haines point, where I occasionally took my girlfriend at night to watch the submarine races in the Potomac river<G>, and the largish white structure above the cockpit was part of NAS, Anacostia, which was closed to fixed wing aircraft in 1962 (along with adjacent Bolling AFB) and operations were shifted to nearby Andrews AFB. I'm not sure if the fountain visible is still there or not.
