Henson - A true commuter


Dick Henson will always be remembered as an airline pioneer and entrepreneur.  He started with one route from Hagerstown, Maryland to Washington, DC in 1962 with Beech 18s.

Henson then began code sharing in 1967 with Allegheny Airlines on Beech 99 services between Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia—one of the first airlines to code share. Henson established a base in Salisbury on the Maryland Eastern Shore as an Allegheny Commuter in 1968 and began using larger 50-seat turboprop de Havilland Canada Dash 7s (shown here) and 30-seat Shorts 330s in the 1970s.
