All American Airways was a supplemental carrier that flew the C-46 aircraft. In 1959 it name changed to Saturn Airways and began operating DC-6 planes and eventually obtained DC-7s. In 1965 Saturn acquired AAXICO Airlines. Later they purchased DC-8F freighters. After absorbing the assets of defunct Universal Airlines in May 1972, it added nine L-188 Electrra aircraft. Saturn also operated nineteen Lockheed Hercules aircraft.
