Cincinnati May Be Terminal

On Pick-up Air Mail Route

Cincinnati Post April 15, 1941

Cincinnati will become a terminal point for a pick-up air mail service to cities and towns throughout Ohio if the Civil Aeronautics Board approves applications filed at Washington Tuesday by the All American Aviation Co. Wilmington, Del.

The pick-up service does not require a landing, the company's planes swooping down over a field and picking up the mail sacks while in flight.

No word of the proposed services has been received by officials locally. however, an official of the American Airlines said the pick-up service, which especially benefits small towns would not interfere with its air mail contract here.
