A Waterbank Airlines charter flight prepares for takeoff from East River Intercontinental Airport. The age of the craft can be seen from the airport approval stamps for Undine Airport, Sunnydale, Twin Gems, and Waterbank. Airport approval stamps were discontinued in 2013.
Waterbank Airlines has a shaky future by all opinions, but especially at White Star Airport, where the new Landing Rating System (AKA the Christi Landing Rating System) rated a recent landing at a level so low that “it frightens people on the ground and the air.”
Industry watchers say that the airline, which has only two regular flights, has subsisted only by charter flights and freight services. WIA and law enforcement agencies have investigated WA several times over the last year for smuggling and illegal practices, but have not made any arrests.
