Description:WISCONSIN CENTRAL AIRLINES (WCA) was borne of the Flight Department of the [Badger] Four Wheel Drive Auto Company (FWD) ([1909]) in 1939 at Clintonville - Wisconsin using WACO Bi-Planes (NC13434 & NC2270) and shortly thereafter purchasing a 1940 HOWARD DGA-15P (NC71E) in 1941: A Wisconsin state original airline that started in 1944 with two CESSNA UC-78B/T-50's (NC51401 & NC63662, affectionately known as "Bobcats") followed by official scheduled service in February 1948 with three LOCKHEED 10A's before the acquisition of three more additional L-10A's and then adding in 1951 a CESSNA 170 (N9716A, Trainer/Route Familiarizer) and updating/replacing the L-10A fleet with DOUGLAS DC-3's in 1950 through 1952. As the Airline grew and expanded it was renamed to NORTH CENTRAL AIRLINES (late in 1952). FWD/WCA was a forge for modern day airline aviation. The FWD and WCA legacy of Air Transport Operation(s) now rests in the DELTA AIR LINES Prosperity as of 2008. ...(val) WCA is representative of the age in aviation when propeller powered flight ruled the air in the era of the Low-n-Slow Airlines that made the world a smaller place.
