Freight Dogs Finally a forum for those midnight prowler types who utilise the unglamorous parts of airports that many of us never get to see. Freight Dogs is for pilots and crew who operate mostly without SLF.

Dang! ATR caught Bombardier sleeping again! A Dash-8-200 freighter would have market appeal.

Will they end up in Europe or EEUU? Maybe mixed in between both?

A 30-aircraft order with 20 options covers more than the 47 ATR42-300s and ATR72-200s currently leased to feeder operators Stateside (Mountain Air Cargo and Empire Airways) and in Europe (ASL Airlines and Swiftair). So my bet is that they will all receive them.

Cheers
