I would like to see one for the CRJ 🤷🏼‍♂️ But verry Nice topic!


This is my favorite propeller plane, too, suitable for inter-island flights and airports that have a ground that is not too long. :)

You should make one about the rest of the Dash 8s. Q100, Q200 and Q300

Do you mean “formerly”?

I thought United Retired their last Dash8s years ago, they still have them?

Ok, I’ll fix that up.

United still uses Q400s? I thought they were retired

Oh, in that case. Ill remove them.
