Halas,

THere is some info about the Amann Aviation / Skywest issue here:

http://books.google.com/books?id=IbD...6_O0#PPA212,M1

If you Google for Amann Aviation, you will also find a number of legal references. Amann sued the Commonwealth for breach of contract:

From the ANU website:
"The Amann Aviation case is an example where termination of a contract backfired.

In March 1987, Amann Aviation won the contract to provide coastal surveillance services in northern Australia. Although it did not at the time have the scale of operations or the expertise or equipment to meet the contract, it was to acquire resources before commencement of the contract in September. Its tender had indicated that acquisition of resources was feasible, but, in practice, it was apparent that the company was not in a position to begin operations by the start-up date. The Commonwealth therefore terminated the contract. In a subsequent court case, damages of over $5m were awarded against the Commonwealth."

Can't find anything about the Skywest merger with Lloyd.

Regards,
David
