I know that Seair ended up with a couple of them in the early 1980's. I belive there is a picture on one on this site but don't quote me. I have see one online somewhere though. When Seair when belly up they where bought by ERA Aviation and are still flying. The Seaair scheme was basicly the same as Frontiers except the change the Roundels.

Yes, Continental did fly them for a while out of Stapleton back when they had a hub there. They eventually replaced them with DHC-7's and B1900's.
United Express continued to fly them for quite some time out of DIA after they took over Aspen's CVR-580's.

Cheers,
