I really like the Dash8. Such a great aircraft, seemingly able to land in any weather conditions (as we saw in the UK recently). Great pictures, thanks for sharing!

Saw some of these badass pilots landing at crazy low speed once winds started hitting today at Geneva.

Definitely a bird I would love to see getting a live cockpit

Well, not harder than expected in those conditions 🙂

I agree! Love to fly the Dash
Thanks!

Cool! Both Wideroe and Airbaltic fly regularly to my home airport, I Need to go spotting at a windy day.

Cool. What aircraft did you fly?

Conair (British Airways) 737-800. Did you see any aircraft like that? Cause I remember that easy plane and I saw a dash or CRJ land but not sure. My callsign was Conair 07 maybe you heard it

I remember seeing a Comair callsign in the air, but not on the ground

I guess we were in the same airspace then

I keeping thinking the title says “Like a Cow” I don’t know why. Anyhow lovely shots mate, I don’t fly the Dash 8 much but when I do it’s fun to fly.
