Airkenya Update from Nairobi


A recent photo of MSN 80 5Y-BMP of Airkenya taken at Wilson Airport in Nairobi in mid-November. Although missing a propeller it doesn't appear to have succumbed to the stage of parts reclamation quite yet.

Looking not quite so good is MSN 32 5Y-BPD which has been parked at Wilson for the last several years.

Dash-7 Archive Update


Addition of the history files is continuing, with aircraft up to and including MSN 80 uploaded, along with a selection of photographs to accompany many of the pages.

A couple of notes with respect to the files already uploaded:

They are still a work in progress, even though they have been uploaded. Once the complete production run has been finished, I will go back and make certain adjustments. These will include things like ensuring company names/locations match from aircraft to aircraft, and adding further details that may have come to light.

At that time I will also go back and finalize the way that the U.S. Army EO-5C fleet is shown, and add more pertinent details. Right now there is a large variance in the way the registered owner/operator appears, partially because of the unique civil/military mixing, but I will get that sorted out.

I also intend to increase the information on the Voyageur and Trans Capital fleets with respect to the United Nations activities - I currently have about 3 pages of notes that need to be validated and then inserted into the histories.

Lastly, you'll note that probably 75% of the photographs uploaded do not, as yet have the details or credit line attached. This will be done before the history files are finalized.

There have been a good number of new subscriptions, which shows that the old -7 has a bit of a cult following...and that is of course great.  Additional information and photographs are gladly received as always.
