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.

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

jlemon, You Da Man!! St. Kitts it is. Here's the outbound schedule:

Sunjet International Airlines FE 801 Miami (MIA) 130p-615p St. Maarten (SXM) 645p-710p St. Kitts (SKB) Lockheed Electra Wed Sat
