Aircraft Update for 31-Aug-2016


Updated: 31-Aug-2016 @ 1140


  • Added entry for DHC-8-314 MSN 309



Good size update to end the month of August, although it is dominated by Beech types (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Again, just a reminder that the "Updated" notation above indicates the latest update. The most recent version is always the one direct from the web, as when needed I continue to make changes after the 1400ET distribution of subscription copies.

If you have friends or work colleagues who might be interested in seeing the blog, let them know about it. If you regularly take photographs of the aircraft types covered here, please consider contributing. Just use the "contact the publisher" form in the right column.

56 - DHC-7-102 (EO-5C) N566CC U.S. Army, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD

Flew  El Paso, TX - Tucson-Davis Monthan, AZ 29-Aug-2016 for storage. It is seen below after arrival, and is the first EO-5C to enter the storage facility. All of the fleet will be replaced by DHC-8-300 airframes in due course. N566CC had previously been in the low-vis gray scheme, so I assume that it received the updated red & white colours when it was in Muskoka, ON in Nov/Dec-2015.

MSN 56 was originally delivered to Ransome Airlines in 1981, and was acquired by the military in 2002.
