I have always like the Dash 8 in Austrian colors. It did a lot of work for Austrian and I am sad to see it go.
Never worked on theirs, but have worked on a lot of Dash's 1oo's thru 400's... They were all great easy planes to work on that were a very reliable work horse
Here in Canada we still use Dash 8s especially in the far north. Good plane for crappy runways and bad weather.
Have flown as a passenger on hundreds of Air Canada Dash 8 flights. Still doing the job, Iconic aircraft in this country.
What about the Twin Otter
The Dash 8's that served Ithaca, NY were painted in United livery however, the engine intake covers (plugs) said "Tyrolean".
