Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA) - June, 1987

I flew PSA once or twice while on the west coast. The thing that most stood out about their fleet was the smile painted on every plane. When USAir (later US Airways) bought them in 1988, the combined route structure was impressive. Sadly, the culture never meshed and USAir mismanaged their western acquisition, and what was left of PSA's route structure disappeared.

This is an exceptionally good picture showing a what I PSA jet looked like with a smile and the current USAirways livery.
