This week United Airlines announced it's buying U-S Airways.
The mega merger isn't a done deal yet - and it's hard to tell in the early stages just what it would mean for air travelers in our area.
But regardless of the outcome, buyouts, mergers, and companies going-out-of-business have made airport runways a virtual patchwork quilt of company logos.
The runway at Roanoke Regional Airport is no exception

But around the time of airline deregulation in 1978 - came the end of Roanoke Regional's role as a hub.

In its day - Piedmont meant big business for Roanoke's airport, but it wasn't the FIRST major airline to touch down in the Star City. [black and white American Airlines footage from AIRPORT REEL TC 17:00]
American Airlines was the first to sign on for operation after Roanoke Regional became a publicly-owned airport in 1930.

And if that sounds like a short layover - in business terms - other airlines didn't make it THAT long.
Eastern offered Roanoke service only about a year before the company finally went belly-up.
Despite the stops and starts - [airport aerial shots from AIRPORT REEL TC 16:37] things seem to be looking up for Roanoke Regional because of the rise in regional carriers and the [US Airways Express jet from J. MIELE SAVE TAPE TC 8:30] increasing numbers of smaller jets being purchased. [U-S Airways and United Express planes together from J. MIELE SAVE TAPE TC 9:34]

As for the merger of United and U-S Airways - [jet taking off from J. MIELE SAVE TAPE TC 9:48] it remains to be seen whether it's a marriage made in heaven.
