While a Dash8 normally does not attract much attention at an international airport, this aircraft is a real heavy movement for Samedan. As the acft made its way through the valley towards the airport many of the people who passed by or did some cross-country skiing at the nearby slopes stopped to see this big regional turboprop land on rwy 03. In this close-up you can even see the Captain focusing to end the visual approach with a smooth touch down. Taken with a Canon 1DmkIII at 400mm, f/13 and ISO 50 for 1/80th.

That can't be a Dash-8, they are not that clean from the factory.
Very nice picture, the plane and the background look [perfect together.

Fabulous picture! This dash could foul us to be a private jet for a moment. Suddenly the plain boring aircraft (Dash8 family) reveal itself to be a very impressive machine and you caught it right. Congrats.
