Dash 8: The Piedmont Story – YouTube
As you know from reading the blog, Piedmont just retired its last Dash 8 from service. It had flown that airplane for more than 30 years, so you can imagine that it was an important aircraft to the airline. Turns out, it was so important that Piedmont put together a half-hour documentary looking at the airplane, and it is just delightful. At the very least, put this on in the background while you work. You’ll enjoy it.
