When were the final examples completed? and are they still in active passengeer duty. I used to love seeing this shed all over the UK with the likes of BD and UK but now there are so few. How about in the US, any sizeable fleets left?

Yeah i remember seeing the 'sick box' from the window in the cafe at LBA operated by gill airways or air uk. There is a body of the sick box at LBA for fire training i believe.

The only ones I can think of in the US flying the SH360 is ACC.....Air Cargo Carriers. As for when the last were built.. I think it was mid-late 1980's

If you really want to see one, go to CKB and watch the military (actually WV ANG) fly them around about 50 times daily. They've got a few up there, and love to go in the pattern or a few miles out to do some VFR air work. CKB probably has the highest concentration of ops by those weird looking things.

...they produce some nasty wake though if you're behind them in a 172.

All 360s were delivered by December 1989 except for one delivered June 27, 1991. The last one below. Not sure of current status.

How many 330s and 360s were produced? I remember Golden West operated some 330s out of LAX, and American Eagle had a handful of 360s for awhile out of DFW. Unmistakable profile on these rather odd-looking birds. Sadly, I've never gotten to fly in one.
Regards.

Air Cargo Carriers out of Milwaukee operate a rather large fleet of all the boxy Shorts...all colors shapes and sizes. I don't know of any US carrier still operating any version in pax configuration.

A.net articles show production as 136 for the 330 and 165 for the 360, including military C-23 Sherpa versions built for the U.S.Army.

Many thanks, Viscount. As usual, you came thru again.  Wink
I wasn't aware that the A.net database show production numbers.
Regards.

I remember, I think manx, operated the 36 seater S360 with TWO cabin crew members for a time. Wouldnt get that now with the bare minimum and the cut backs.
