Jambojet Bombardier Aerospace Dash 8 Q402


Origin
5Y-JXB serial no: 4555

What a beauty right? Probably the best looking Q400 out there. Magnificent👌 livery. What else would one ask for as a feature request…

The aircraft has splendid performance in poor airfields and it can also be used as a regional aircraft between a small city and a hub (eg Graz to Vienna)

Great looking livery! But I think I still prefer the Alaska Horizon one more.


Small typo, btw:

If you want it, why don’t you vote? :-)

They are out of votes but still want to request. Great example of Human Greed.


Honestly, the livery looks very similar to the Austrian Airlines Dash 8. Is it just me?

Don’t forget about African Airlines in general! Most people haven’t even seen them lol, like lions in the wild.

I don’t wanna necropost but this has to be revisited. Who wouldn’t want an aircraft Misha voted for? That’s one swanky livery.

This is such a nice, and unique livery! Hoping this could be coming soon along with a q400 rework? 🤞

Nice to see this topic come back to life! This would be a crucial addition to Infinite Flight especially as fats sa East Africa is concerned.
