I have been in there numerous times, and some Evergreen dude gives winds over unicom. Lots of trainers, etc in the area414Flyer said:Evergreen has a lease to use the airport, but there is a chance they will end up going someplace else. Part of the lease agreement is that Evergreen will allow public use for the airport, which as far as I know, they have not done.
There are actually about 13 or so companies I think under the Evergreen umbrella.
They operated them out of Berlin. Then switch to B727's. The 737's then flew out of MIA and were retired by 1990.Citrus531 said:I didn't think Pan Am ever operated 737's....sad seeing the ex-TWA L10's rotting away
Pan Am operated a small fleet (16) of B737-200's on their inter-European routes and up and down the Berlin corridor as part of the IGS fleet for several years. May have used them out of Miami later as well. It was one of Acker's deals that probably lined his pockets somehow before it was over.CSY Mon said:Well, somebody did, and painted them in Pan Am's colors.
It's actually named Pinal Airpark in Marana, Arizona just Northwest of Tucson. Don't want to get folks confused with what is now Marana Northwest Regional Airport which for anyone who's been around AZ for any time thinks of it as Avra Valley. The two are only a few miles apart.Otterjock said:Marana Air Park, just outside of Tucson.
Yes they were in MIA in the late 1980's and were retired by late 1989 or eary 1990.Spooky 1 said:May have used them out of Miami later as well. It was one of Acker's deals that probably lined his pockets somehow before it was over.

They were -200's. When I flew there (89-91) we only a few left and they flew mostly up and down Florida (TPA-MIA & MCO-MIA). They came from Air Florida (some were ex-UAL 737-222's). Acker was gone when I was hired but he probably had a lot to do with it.CSY Mon said:Yeah, that seems about right:
From the pics on this page it looks like they were -100 series.
