007 – DeKalb-Peachtree Airport Props March 30, 2018

While PDK has its share of interesting bizjet traffic, there is also a nice variety of prop aircraft. The local flight schools keep the airspace busy, but there were a surprising number of recip and turboprop airplanes in and out.

On Good Friday, I was surprised to see three Dornier 328-110s of the USAF Special Operations Command. No idea what they were doing there, but it was interesting to see a trio.

10-3068, MSN 3068, was originally delivered to USAir Express carrier PSA as N458PS in May 1996.

__________

16-3020, MSN 3020, was delivered to Horizon Air as N337PH in November 1994. It later went to Lone Star Airlines and Air Wisconsin before being adapted to USAF standards.

__________

15-3086, MSN 3086 was first delivered to Shell Petroleum in April 1997 as 5N-SPD.  It later served with a couple of different corporate operators before being sold to the USAF Special Operations Command in 2016.

There were a good number of Pilatus PC-12s at PDK. This has become popular among turboprop operators for whom two engines is not a requirement. It boasts a larger cabin than a King Air, with, of course, around half  the fuel burn.
