Default Hawkair Dash 8

Oh man, am I ever excited for this to arrive in the mail! I worked for Hawkair and spent over a year out on the ramp slugging it out with bags on these birds. I met some great friends there too. This will bring back a lot of wonderful memories. When WestJet Encore started flying into Smithers to compete against Air Canada Express/Jazz, they ran with a $99 introductory price. It ran Hawkair out of town, and inevitably out of business (they only had a few locations at the time). To add insult to injury, WestJet also pulled out of Smithers leaving Air Canada as the only game in town. If they had left it alone from the start... Hawkair might still be here.

Another Hawkair livery. No doubt DashSevern can supply more details regarding this airframe and logo design.

Beautifully done! On C-FYDH, famous west coast artist, Roy Henry Vickers, designed the revised logo/livery for this unique Hawkair livery that was only applied to one aircraft. What a beautiful job on the custom model! Thank you so much for recreating CJE and YDH in miniature for me. That’s half the 4-plane fleet! It’s also a big part of my aviation career, so I will definitely treasure this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The third of 4 Hawkair liveries, which is my particular favourite.

That is gorgeous - and looks quite a bit like the livery was repurposed from one of my favorite carriers - so I had a look on planespotters and sure enough the previous reg before C-FLAD shows:

N802LR
De Havilland Canada DHC-8-102 Dash 8
Freedom Airlines
13 Jun 2006 Y37 2x PWC PW120A
leased from CIT
opf Delta Connection

Nice work Mike!

Nice work Mike!
Cheers Denny thanks for the compliment.
Might be tempted to do N802LR.
