Precision Airlines Pilot Wing
Springfield, VT 1977-1989
The airline's early operation was largely devoted to Beech D.18 freight runs in support of the machine tool industry. By the late 1970s the decline of the machine tool industry found Precision Airlines operating the Beech 99 and De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter as a passenger feeder line for the large airports at Boston and New York. On 1 May 1986, Precision became affiliated with Eastern Express, a move that was essentially the beginning of the end for the small carrier. Three years later, after the fall of Eastern Airlines, Precision became part of Northwest Airlink and the Precision identity disappeared from the aircraft.
