Post SAS Q400's in Canada?

There are two Q400's parked on this side of the pond with the SAS markings taken off. Any idea why?

Delayed delivery until further. SAS must have had a cancellation/deferral clause. Not sure if they ever will take them.

Are they at Downsview? - if so they might be 4002 & 4003, two of the test aircraft. Beleive they were both in SAS colours for sales purposes.

Cool

You don't say!? . .When having to modify every aircraft up to sn 034 extensively.. .When SAS already have taken one to the scrap yard.

I can't see why they should be questioning the reliability? <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

DashPilot: You say they have the SAS markings removed. Just the letterring or have the nacelles & tail been repainted? What colour are they?

SLB: 4002 & 4003 were never painted in SAS colours for Sales efforts. That was 4004.

Knold: SAS taken a Q400 to the scrap yard? Oh really - which one and why?

Bombardier/SAS do the modifications in our hangar medivac. One of the mechs told me that. I don't know which aircraft induvidual it was.

Kinda' raises your eyebrow when thinking about what these mods must cost Bombardier...

A tail strike does not warrant a trip to the scrap yard. Aerospace structural engineers probably spend more time on repair schemes throughout service life than on the initial design of an aircraft.
