  1. “Didn’t want to hijack the dash thread so I started this one...maybe we could start a thread for neat aircraft“ All aircraft are neat. That would be a very long thread...
  2. That is an incredible story. Thanks for posting, st27. We honour our fallen soldiers every 11 November but we should remember them and the sacrifices they made every day.
  3. Clarification has been provided. Thanks
  4. 737’s parked at Renton Field: https://youtu.be/46InmJexzYg
  5. That’s an interesting turn of events. Glad everyone is okay. Details on this incident will be worth reading.
  6. Better end-of life than cut up in a salvage yard. Reminded me of this event from 2006: http://dive.bc.ca/boeing-737/boeing-737_wreck.html
  7. Only the -311 series of Dash 8 is eligible for the extended life program. The -301 main landing gear isn’t produced anymore. That’s why the Jazz 301’s are time-expiring. This may have been posted before but here’s what happens to a Dash 8-301. This was the first one I flew in ‘95. https://youtu.be/0e1go14CD2I
  8. Viking itself may not but Longview Aviation does. Says so in the first paragraph of the article in post 1.
  9. As boestar said, demand has to be there. I’m sure Viking would consider building new Dash 8’s if orders were made. I doubt they follow the “if we build it, they will come” philosophy of manufacture.
  10. Shouldn’t take a few ladybugs to get an airplane a good wash.....
  11. I’m sure Viking will display the company name correctly. i hope they use this company logo as well.
