Looks like we're set up for eight there, with benches that are easily removed to convert to cargo configuration.

A lot of time and attention has been given to refurbishing the cockpit in its original Canadian 3N colors.

This is one reason the Twin Beech is loved as it is. The 'ole P&W R985 just keeps going and going and going. I flew them on 450-Stearman and Twin Beech sprayers and they are my favorite engine.

This is the only reason Bravo Delta is so shiny. It doesn't just happen. Kirsten Brazier, Chief Pilot and Operations Manager of DaxAir has spent a lot of time with that buffer! Kirsten and her partner have worked hard at bringing this aircraft up to their standards from stem to stern.
