Midway Connection Airlines Pilot Hat Badge

Chicago, IL

Two airlines have used this same name. An investment group from Michigan bought out Direct Air based in Gary Indiana and bought new planes and moved ops to Midway. This is that airlines hat badge. They initially served Battle Creek, Quad City and Champaign/Urbana, and other cities similar in size and distance from Midway. They were known for their checker paint pattern on the aircraft tail and the same checkered pattern shows up in the hat badge design.
