|THE 737S : THE BEECHCRAFTS|
|The regular Janet fleet is composed of six Boeing 737s and five Beechcraft King Air turboprops. The 737s are painted white with a red stripe down the center of the fuselage. The King Airs are also white, but painted with a blue strip down the plane. For the most part, the 737s perform about twenty scheduled flights between LAS, TNX, and Groom Lake daily. The King Airs typically fly workers to and from locations in southern California like Edwards AFB and Palmdale. The King Airs also seem to operate the bulk of unscheduled flights.|
The airline is operated by the Special Projects division of EG&G (Edgerton, Germeshausen, and Grier, Inc.), whose headquarters is located in an office park south of Las Vegas’ McCarren Airport. The red and white paint scheme on the 737s is probably a visual reference to EG&G’s logo, which features a three-pronged red cross. From time to time, EG&G posts Las Vegas job openings for pilots and flight attendants, all of which require "Secret" security clearances or above.
