Northeast Airlines : 1933-1972

Northeast Airlines' first flight was on August 11, 1933 from Boston to Portland and Bangor Maine. At that time Northeast was known as Boston and Maine Airways and was a subsidiary of the Boston and Maine Railroad. The new airline, which would change its name to Northeast Airlines in 1940, had been founded a very short time before its first flight by one of the country's first air mail pilots, Paul Collins. Amelia Earhart was also a founder.
