Piedmont Airlines, as planned, officially retired the last de Havilland Canada DHC-8-100 Dash 8 from scheduled service from the Philadelphia hub on November 29, 2017.

The type goes back to the Henson Airlines days. The last scheduled flight was flight AA 4810 from Philadelphia to the Salisbury, MD base with the pictured N806EX.

Our last scheduled Dash-8-100 flight happens later on November 29, 2017 (PHL-SBY 4810) so it’s fitting that we also received jet #34 this morning. 100s are still being used as spares, so don’t be surprised if you see one out in the wild somewhere.

Interesting day at Piedmont – we said goodbye to the Dash 8 in PHL and HVN, introduced the Embraer-145 in IPT and took delivery of our 34th jet in SBY (below).

Piedmont Airlines is due to retire the larger DHC-8-300 Dash 8 in July 2018.
