Gonna miss that old pain shaker. It was fun to watch flying over our house back and forth from KSBY to KCLT. It was not much fun riding in it.
I always thought the Dash-7 was a cool airplane too.
Much preferred the -7
Each has it's advantage... The -7 was much harder to work on... especially rigging the Throttle Switches... And with 4 engines meant double the work and was also less power than the Dash 8. Both from a passenger point of view are a good ride!
I always love the bass hum of those tp's
Never had the opportunity to fly in one, but it’s always sad to see an airplane retired
