The other day (10/25), I was sitting in FLL around midday and watched a Q400 exit rwy 27R and taxi to a nearby FBO (near where the YS-11s are parked). The aircraft appeared to deplane, sit for a while, close up and left, though I missed the departure of it. I couldn't tell what the colour scheme was so I was wondering if anyone here had any info it. Any takers? Are there many privately-owned Q400s flying around the US?

Thanks for the reply! That thought crossed my mind at first, but I thought that Bombardier used their house colours version on demo tours; this one was definitely in another (albeit subdued) navy blue/yellow (I think) pattern. I suppose it's not entirely impossible for them to have a couple of 'em hangin' about .

Funny, I was on a boat with my friend heading to John U Loyd Beach park, it's right in front of the airport, right when we're pulling in I saw it. I told my other friend (also an aviation geek), and he didn't know either.
Never seen a Q400 there! Was an interesting sight however.
