In August 1984, I visited the flightdeck of an America West 737-200 on the COS
stopover of a MCI
flight. I was talking to the pilots about future of America West. While we were talking, the FO pointed out the window at a Dash 8 taxiing by, like it was somthing he had never seen before. Being only 9 years old, I was unfamiliar with the aircraft, especially since I wasn't well versed in my turboprops at the time. I know Dash-8s weren't in service yet, but could that have been a test flight?
