Piedmont History: Piedmont Airlines was a United States airline from 1948 to 1989, when it was acquired by and merged into USAir. The original Piedmont logo was "Piedmont Airlines" with the distinctive "Speedbird" (three upright red wings). All piedmont crafts were called “Pacemakers”, with the meaning that ‘Piedmont Sets the Pace.’ Each plane’s name was painted on its nose: Buckeye Pacemaker, Tidewater Pacemaker, Appalachian Pacemaker.

About Airstair Doors: Before the introduction of jet bridges, passengers normally boarded an aircraft by walking along the ground- level and climbing a set of removable stairs, or airstairs on aircraft. the stairs are often built into the side of a clam- style door.
