Regional/Corporate/Utility Turboprop Update for 06-Mar-2017


Updated: 06-Mar-2017 @ 1135



There will be an update to the Third Level Piston Supplement this afternoon. Please note that the link to that page can now be found above, with the other blog links, and is now formally TwinPropSpotter. I have not set up the availability of subscriptions to that, so you will need to either continue to use the link, or bookmark TwinPropSpotter in your browser.

I will also be adding individual type photo pages in the coming days. These will hold all of the previously published photos in the blog, by aircraft type.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Jarrod Wilkening for allowing the use of his excellent photos. The quality of the photography doesn't really get any better than this, so check the links on the photos below to see more.
