Looks like a lot of coordination to do a fly over in today's environment.

from the article;

“It involves a tremendous amount of coordination between flight control, flights operations, technical, corporate communications, the Department of Homeland Security, the universities and local media,” Horizon officials said on their internal website.

The ironic thing is that Boeing flies airplanes over the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie every year.

UW is a little late to the game...Horizon has already performed the fly-over at University of Oregon - Eugene & Washington State University - Pullman. Happened to see both in person. Pretty cool idea!

What else is new.......

They're also doing the Boise State with the new BSU plane.

Something about a low pass/fly over with a Q400 sounds like a lot of fun to me. It would be cool to see something like this, rather than some military jet screaming over the stands.

That's just the schedule QX came up with. They will do the Oregon State plane on October 31st and the Boise State will unveil on November 9th and fly over November 14th.

I'll make sure to look out for it on the 24th! Wasn't planning on going to the game, but I'll try to get over to the stadium anyway.

Though, as a UW student, I have to admit that we get dozens of "fly overs" of QX Q400s every day over our campus as they come in on the north approach to SEA.

Agreed, and comparing the speeds of the aircraft, the crowd probably has a few more seconds viewing time  Smile

You won't see a BSU plane until QX starts taking deliveries of Q400's again.

No, the BSU plane is coming November 9th. It is one of the 3 Q400s in storage along with that green Q400. I don't know if they are bringing the other 2 out, but the BSU plane is definitely coming out from what I understand.

That's wonderful! Could it be a sign that QX is seeing more flying demand????

Unfortunately I don't think it has to do with demand. 2 things are happening.

- A few CRJs are taking over routes like SEA-LGB, LAX-LTO from AS starting soon here. This will leave some lines of flying needing to be filled on these jet's former lines.

- QX is parking 2 CRJs. Don't know the reason though, but don't think it is because they found buyers.

So 3 Q400s are coming on to fill these gaps between parked jets and moved around flying.

My understanding is QX has been operating/planning on a zero airplane growth. So it has to park the CR7's if it adds the DH4's. Otherwise pilot numbers, flight attendants, etc...wouldn't match up.

Yep. And there's a ton of coordination and paperwork to go with that too.

Is the green Q400 included in the 3 that are coming online in the near future? What was the purpose of the green Q400??? Environmental green or Sounders green?

Yes I believe so. It is specifically because of environmental green. In a recent thread I posted an artist rendition. It'll have titles that say "Q400, Comfortably Greener."

Yeah you are probably right.

Watching Horizon's Oregon plane fly over Autzen Stadium before the start of the Oregon/Wazzu game was pretty cool. I tried to take a picture but my cell phone zoom capabilities are not too good. They made an announcement over the PA system before the flyover. The Oregon jet flew right over the stadium from the west. It turned within view of the where my Dad and I were seated then flew over the field a second time.

I saw the Oregon plane parked at Terminal A the next day when I flew out of PDX. It looked like it was being prepared for a revenue flight.

Oh....... The final score was Oregon 52 and Wazzu 6.
The Oregon defense only allowed Washington State four first downs the entire game. I kind of felt bad for the Cougars. Well, not really  Wink

Go Ducks!!



I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....
