Re: Unalaska/Dutch Harbor DUT/PADU now that 7H-Ravn/Penair is shut down

Q400 apparently has a wingspan issue. I can't speak to the wingspan issue, but (assuming no terrain) the DH4 ought to be able to get out of DUT and to ANC with a decent payload on dry days. For context, it's 500 feet more runway than YTZ, which has full - albeit shorter - DH4 flights on a regular b...
