I stumbled across a company called Southern Air. Their web site no workie. Humm.

What's the word on them?
Flew L-100 (C-130 Hercules civil variant) and 747's flying cargo. Went bankrupt about 2-3 years ago I think.
I agree with Race Pilot that they went bankrupt;
HOWEVER They appear to be around in some form as I stll see some of their 74s in places like MIA and South America- I was in Bogota one night and saw like 3 74s. Maybe they were Chap 11 and trying to reorganize.
SA is apparently alive and well- their office is in Columbus, OH. You can see some pics of their aircraft from a few months back at airliners.net and also read a little about them at pprune.org- go to freight dogs. I believe they have a class of 12 or 13 going right now. I have a friend from the old SAT who flew 47's up until '97 for the old SAT and can't believe that there is now a SA (without the T).

That's all I know.

Saw this....hope it's ok to post this on this board. If not, I guess someone will let me know about it soon enough.

(No Phone Calls Please)

Southern Air planes out of LAX are flying under a CATHAY CARGO call sign. Whatever that means.

I think that means CX needs to buy more airplanes and hire more pilots.
In regards to using cx callsign- that is pretty common under acmi. We do that mostly ourselves and use the callsign of the company we are sub-servicing for.
