A Blast from the Past: This was my first flight inside a small propeller passenger plane... A Beech 1900D which I thought from the out side was an ugly little thing.... but.... after flying it I ended up loving it!! It was roomy (I could stand up straight)... fast (especially taxiing & on take off), had huge windows and it gave me the real thrill of flying...so now it's my favorite small plane :-) circa 1999.

Photo: A old photo of the inside of C-GORF Ontario Express' BEH1900D showing the rounded high ceiling and large windows.. This is a rugged popular small capacity regional plane used widely on very short hops out of major airports around the world. It's noisy, small, actually pleasant inside, having these very large passenger windows and barrels down the runway like a bat out of hell.. you get a real sense of "flying" when you take one of these planes.
