Bought from TOA Domestic in 2.81, this was one of more than 20 YS-11s used by Mid Pacific for passengers or freight through the Eighties. This one was converted to cargo configuration in 1985 and was wfu at Oakland in the early Nineties but is no longer extant
Among the fourteen YS-11's in storage at Honolulu in 1988 was this N121MP, a former Mandala Airlines aircraft (ex PK-RYY). It was bought by Mid Pacific Airlines in December 1987, but never entered service with them. Still carrying the Mandala tail colours and no titles, it remained in storage here until Nov 1989, when it was sold in Mexico as XA-RPF.
In September 1988 no less than fourteen NAMC YS-11's were stored at Honolulu. They were all owned by Mid Pacific Air, although only eleven actually carried their titles. This N103MP, named "Melanie Valencia", was one of them. This aircraft was sold to Mexico as XA-RQU in 1989, and withdrawn from use two years later. It ended up in storage at Durango, and had almost certainly been scrapped by 2010.
One of the fourteen YS-11's in storage at Honolulu in 1988 was N109MP, pictured here against a typical Hawaiian backdrop of green hills and mountains and towering clouds. This aircraft was purchased in 1983 and withdrawn from service in July 1988. It was broken up during 1992-1993.
