Some time ago I recall reading about a potential FedEx feeder that was a single scimitar-type prop on the nose, driven by a PT-6 twin pack. The photo in the article showed a picture in FedEx livery. It was supposedly being considered as a follow-on replacement of the Caravans. What was this aircraft? Are there any pictures of it?

The a/c that killed Ayres. Ayres is back in a way. Thrush Aircraft bought the assets of Ayres from GATX, and restarted the Ayres Thrush line of cropduster under the Thrush name. The mockup of the Loadmaster still sits in the factory down in Albany, Georgia. http://www.thrushaircraft.com
