      Love the Dash-7. You can't beat that acft. Unfortunately airlines didn't want the 4 engines. I was at the Roll-out in Downsview for the Dash-7 in March 1975.

        Was it me, or did it sound like it was in reverse pitch even before touchdown?
        By the way, don't look now Dale...but your age is showing!

                    Another reason to rent about elapsed time
                    According to the background during the final seconds, combination of nice shooting conditions and an imperial cast graced the show.
                    Otherwise, even though there probably were just the cockpit crew members on board + minimal amount of fuel to optimize the presentation, it's good to see the fabulous Dash 7 on action. Going along with Dale, too few were built !
