Quiz Description

Every airline flight identifies itself with a callsign when talking on the radio. Usually the callsign consists of the airline name (or a phonetic version, such as "AIRFRANS") and a flight number, but some airlines' callsigns reference their origins or histories. How many of these ICAO callsigns can you recognize? (A word of warning: Some of these callsigns are defunct, or are used by regional feeder airlines which operate under other names, such as Delta Connection or United Express.)
