Good Afternoon Gents

 

I think the time has come for another challenge! After the success of the first, I'm looking for another equally successful venture into the 1950s! For all applicants, you will have the same rules as last time, with a few changes. 

  • One Airline Per Competitor
  • Must be an original design
  • Can be passenger or cargo
  • Must be dated within the 1950s (This can either be a piston prop that's pre-jet age, or a flashy new jet! Yours to decide.)

Contest will end this Friday, April 10th at midnight, Central Standard Time. Points will be awarded for originality, brand cohesiveness, and overall appeal. Post your completed brand here for judging.

 
Good luck.

Huron Air Lines | Detroit, MI

Huron Air Lines was founded in the summer of 1959, beginning service from Detroit to major cities in the Northeast and Midwest with DC-7 aircraft. Within the next few years the airline would go on to acquire Boeing 707, Boeing 727, Boeing 720 (pictured here) and DC-8 aircraft. This is the first livery the airline had.

Air Austria (Luft Österreich AG) | Vienna, Austria

 

Air Austria was founded in 1956 as Luft Österreich AG, though its roots go back to 1921. It commenced operations in September, leasing a single Vickers Viscount. Seven more were delivered by 1960, when the aircraft received its first jet - the Sud Aviation Caravelle III (seen below, in the original 1956 livery). It flew routes throughout Austria and Continental Europe, and the type remained in service with the airline until 1973.

Royal Maskat Air Service | Muscat, Oman

This is for the late '40s - early '50s, so I guess it still falls within the decade.

N.Z.A.C. (New Zealand Air Company) was the second largest airline in New Zealand, behind N.Z.O.A. (New Zealand Overseas Airways). They introduced this livery in 1951. In 1959 they merged with N.Z.O.A. to become New Zealands' new flag carrier.

Compagnies Francais Aeriennes was Started by The French Government in 1950, after World War II, to connect Continental France to three overseas territories. The airline placed orders for 10 DHC-106 Comet's. The airline in 1954 then placed orders for 20 Sud Aviation Caravalle's for Flights in the European market. They placed orders for 20 Dc-8's 1958. In 1960, when France let go of there overseas territories, the airline collapsed, as it offered no long haul flights out of The French Overseas Territories, and had no major revenue streams. The Dc-8's Were never Delivered.

Serviços Aéreos Portugueses (SAP) is the national flag carrier of Portugal, refounded in 1945 by the Portuguese government after the dissolution of Serviços Aéreos Portugueses Limitada, a privately-owned airline that served as its forerunner since 1927. Passenger service began in 1946 with flights between Lisbon and Madrid, followed by the debut of a domestic route between Lisbon and Porto in 1947. Throughout the 1950s the airline's nascent route network would gradually expand to cover important cities in Western Europe as well as destinations in Portugal's African colonies. Further expansion into Africa took place after the airline's first privatisation in 1953, when Casablanca and Tangier were added as new destinations.

In the late 1940s, several large American railways founded long distance focused airlines in an attempt to extend their route networks beyond the continental United States. The effort wasn't very successful because travelers were reticent to interchange between a fast airplane and slow train. Having thoroughly misunderstood what travelers wanted and invested significant cash into their respective airline ventures, the railways were quick in their attempts to sell off their failed enterprises as their profit margins shrunk in the early 1950s. The result was several moderately sized airline operations dotted across the country all for sale for pennies on the dollar. This business opportunity caught the eye of Omaha businessman and former World War 2 flying ace Gerald Lindstrom. He sold his stake in a successful grocery chain and purchased the struggling railway airlines. He restructured their operations, establishing hubs in San Fransisco and Baltimore and named the new airlines Consolidated World Airways. By 1955, the airline was prosperous, successfully achieving status as a pre-eminent American airline with a large fleet and operations focused on international flights. Pictured below is one of their fleet, a Lockheed Super Constellation bearing the name Lansing Zephyr, in the livery CWA maintained until delivery of their first DC-8 in late 1959.
