My Point of View

Air North is a little regional airline flying in Australia serving small towns. They use the Embraer EMB 120 Brasilla for smaller flights.


Incidents

Air North has a pretty safe safety record with only one crash as listed below from Wikipedia.

On 22 March 2010, one of Airnorth’s Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia aircraft (registration VH-ANB) crashed into bushland near the RAAF Base Darwin golf course at approximately 10:10 (ACST), shortly after taking off from Darwin International Airport on a training flight. The two crew members, who were the only people on board, were killed.

Cool livery and cool aircraft, however I have no votes to free up for it. Would like to see this in IF, though.

No offense but how did they come up with the name Air North? I would have guessed with that name they’d be out of Alaska or Canada.
