The flight operated twice weekly and continued on to another island where it overnighted before returning to the U.S. the next day. Identify the airline, the U.S. gateway airport, the two destination airports and the aircraft type.

22. So....we are looking for an airfield not too far from SXM that could handle an Electra. We know the airport in question was located closer to St. Maarten than Antigua.

And speaking of St. Maarten......

Had that B727-200 freighter (with winglets) been any lower, I think I may have then had sand blown into my rum drink. And I would not have been happy....

Back to business.....Anguilla? Nope. And certainly not St. Barts or Statia. So let's go with St. Kitts.

And now back to live coverage on NBC of Stage 20 of the Tour de France and the last day of bicycle racing in the beautiful French Alps.....
