Very cool! Didn't realize they were doing a retro paint job on the Q400. Would also be neat if they did a Q400 in the not-so-old Horizon Livery with the maroon lines/font.

Saw the post pre-photo on airliners.net- thanks for sharing the image. Was hoping it would be this one.

That actually brings back lots of memories, mostly of flying Horizon Metroliners. Hard to believe it was the end of 1997 when they stopped using them.

my first QX flight was 9 Mar 1984, SEA-PDX aboard N273QX, a Fairchild F-27

Very nice! The blend of the new wordmark and the old livery is perfect.
