Provincetown-Boston Airline (PBA) was an interesting place to work, that to this day is still remembered fondly by those who lived, worked, and flew their aircraft.

Due to my age, I only had the chance to work for them from 1984 through 1992, the company’s history has always fascinated me and I will be forever grateful to have worked such aircraft as the DC3 and the YS11. This website has existed online in one form or another since the late 1990s, but it wasn’t really till the COVID19 outbreak and the shutdown of PBA’s descendant, ExpressJet, that got me fired up to rebuild it. What you will find herein is the result of the past 30 years of collecting and I am happy to provide (most) of it here for all to share in.

While my collection is by no means exhaustive, I feel that it shows a nice cross section of the airline’s life from 1948 thru 1992.

That being said, if anyone has a related item, a piece of ephemera, or photograph that they would like to sell or donate to the collection, I would be more than happy to entertain such offers. I will also be happy to receive digital scans of photos, or other objects (all will be credited) as one can see in the Aircraft section of this site.

Finally, the ultimate plan for the contents of this collection will be to donate them to the Provincetown Historical Society and the Naples Historical Society, so that PBA’s history will continue to be appreciated by all.

If you would like to donate an item, have a question, or correction, or would just like to say hi, please use the form below.

Thank you,
