Belt Made From A Dash 8 Seatbelt

Mon Apr 21, 2008 12:36 am

I wasn't 100% sure quite which category this falls into, but I think this is the right forum!

Basically, I am looking for a belt made out of an aircraft seat belt, which is fairly easy to find, however I'm after one which features the 'Dash 8' logo on the buckle, and this is proving darn near impossible to find. Does anyone know where I can get hold of such a belt, or where I can find a buckle (spare parts perhaps?) to make my own belt out of.

All help is much appreciated, many thanks,

Quoting PlymSpotter (Thread starter):

Maybe just get the belt which looks like the seat belt and then go to a specific shop who can put that logo onto the belt then! I bet that's possible... I thought about doing the same but not with the Dash- 8 though Big grin

Go to PLH and wait for another wheel to fall off a WOW DHC-8-300 and in the insuing panic, get aboard and steal a few seatbelts (get me one too, might need an extender for me to get the proper plane belt look. Those should be in the front galley somewhere). Also, make sure that you don't catch fire or do anything stupid, because I want my belt in good nick :p.

Well yes the MD logo would be equally cool. It's actually embossed/engraved/moulded in the metal of the buckle, so a sticker isn't quite the job  Smile

I could be waiting a while then - nothings fallen off for at least a week  Wink I did once get to the end of the runway only to have to return back to stand, as the brakes had quite obviously worn out and were making some rather unhealthy mechanical noises! Certainly I plan on obtaining my belt legally - what would I do if I got banned form flying WOW?  Wow!
