Arriving in Style

Aviation enthusiast Henry Tenby welcomes us on board an Air Tindi de Havilland Canada Dash 7 he chartered to take 33 like-minded passengers to the Abbotsford International Airshow in dramatic fashion.

Your chariot awaits… This 1982-built de Havilland Canada Dash 7, C-GFFL (c/n 074) transported the group to and from the Abbotsford International Airshow.

First flown in March 1975, the de Havilland Canada Dash 7 is a 50-passenger airliner optimised for short take-off and landings (STOL) as well as operating from unpaved strips. As with the manufacturer's earlier products, the four-engined type was built at the company’s Downsview, Toronto site and shares the same rugged bush plane underpinning as its Beaver, Otter, Caribou and Buffalo stablemates.
