Aircraft Update for 12-May-2016

Updated: 1430 EDT - 12-May-2016

  • Added entry for Beech 1900D UE-252
  • Added entry for DHC-8-102 MSN 217

BE-22 - Beech B100 N86TR Dexter Air LLC, Dextor, MO

Damaged when gear collapsed on landing at Dexter, MO 10-May-2016. N86TR had previously been involved in an incident on 17-Nov-2005 when it made a gear-up landing at Atlanta-Fulton County, GA.

UE-252 - Beech 1900D C-GNAR Northern Air Charter (PR) Ltd., Grimshaw, AB

Registration cancelled 12-May-2016 to USA; aircraft was delivered to Bridgewater, VA on 21-Apr-2016.

217 - DHC-8-102 N837EX Piedmont Airlines, Salisbury, MD

Flew Bangor, ME - Salisbury, MD 11-May-2016 as PDT9950 following repaint into heritage Piedmont c/s, with American Eagle titles. The aircraft has also received the name "Steve Farrow" who is the current President and CEO of Piedmont.

The heritage liveries of AAL are a bit of a hit and miss, depending on which airline is portrayed but it is nice to see the classic Piedmont scheme, celebrating Henson Airlines and their long affiliation with the Dash-8 aircraft.

The only significant difference (other than the titles of course) from the original Piedmont livery which was carried by the Henson fleet is the all blue engine nacelles. The originals were a blue and white combination with red pinstripe, as seen in the second photo.
