    <span style="font-size: 20pt"><span style="font-family: 'Arial Black'">Air Jamaica 1960'S &amp; 1970's</span></span>


    A predecessor to Air Jamaica, the Jamaica Air Service Ltd. used this B707 operated by
    BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corp) seen here at the newly renamed New York John F. Kennedy
    Airport (formerly knows as New York Idlewild Airport)
    (1966)


    Since BeeWee (BWIA British West Indies Airlines) had a 16% stake in the Jamaica Air Service Ltd.,
    it operated this B727 on bahalf of the company parked here at New York JFK.
    History repeats itself to rhatid, as CAL is another reincarnation of BeeWee!
    (1968)


    When the operating agreement with BOAC and BWIA expired in 1969, the modern Air
    Jamaica was formed, operating it's own fleet. It's DC-8 getting serviced at Miami.
