Had my first Dash 8-300 flight in September with BA
Citiexpress. Got seat 12A (window seat, naturally!) which was just behind the wing so didn't get an engine blocking the view whilst on the ground. Was also excellent for seeing the main undercarriage retracted after take-off and then lowered for landing.
The aircraft I flew on had the NVS system so noise and vibration were low and it was a very enjoyable and comfortable flight. I'm something of a fan of the Dash 8 now.
I'm sure you'll enjoy your flight.

Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.
