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.

DHC-7 Archive Update


Over the past week I have been working mostly on adding items to the Archive side of the blog, where you can now find the histories of 34 DHC-7's. There are also some additional pages that have only some photographs added. So, for the immediate future this will continue to be a work in progress. 

With respect to the history pages, what appears in most cases is an initial compilation of data from many sources, and this will undoubtedly be tweaked and added to once all aircraft produced have been completed. One of the sources of the base data has been the production history compiled by the late Michael J. Ody, whose work was instrumental in building Twin Otter Archive as well. Unfortunately at this time I don't have access to his copious back notes, which were a crucial part of the process in preparing Twin Otter Archive.

Continue to check regularly for additions and changes, and of course any news on the DHC-7 fleet overall will be covered as part of the main blog.
