Well unless I am mistaken, Eastern did buy Mackey International Airlines, didn't they?

Also, Mackey International Airline specialized in flights to Caribbean islands and inter-Florida routes particularly Key West, Bahamas, and Turks and Cacios which was probably reason why Eastern bought Mackey to consolidate more routes to Caribbean.

Also Mackey International airline had lots of military contract flights and one of main bases to fly into and out of is Key West Naval Station air base where sight of Mackey DC-8s was common.

Moreover, Mackey International airline operated charter casino flights between KMIA and KLAS using DC-8s.

Eastern bought the original Mackey Airlines in 1967
Mackey International Airlines was the 2nd with the name, launched in 1969, it grew rapidly in the Miami-Bahamas/Turks & Caicos markets.

Whisperliner flights are now searchable:

The site is work in progress so missing images will be common for now, and the plane type pop ups are not all fully working yet and most still have main or golden falcon formatting
