Good on you for wanting to take that on!!! I dont think I've ever seen a Henson repaint of any plane for Flight Simulator! (any version). I managed to find a few photos from airliners.net. I hope they are of some use to you. :) Cheers!Georgehttp://www.airliners.net/open.file/274072/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/212647/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/027367/L/Those were the only pictures I could find of the Dash 7, but in case you needed more help with logos, there are some good pics of their Dash 8s as well:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/027368/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/207950/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/094782/L/

Hi Walt,The Henson Aviation livery was at my former hometown airport for years, KSBY. This is the very livery I flew and fell in love with.Richard Henson was a great contributor in our community, a strong supporter of the local college, turned University. He loved to fly the Dash 7's as well.I would be very pleased to have a Henson in my hangar. :-)RegardsMilton ShupeThe Dash 7 Project

Milton, seems that Henson Airlines had branched into south Florida as well: I first flew Henson Airlines' Dash 8-100 to W. Palm Before they became USAir Express back in the late 80s. I remember going up to Baltimore in '88 with my mum to see my sister into college up here (Bowie State) and visiting DC to see many Henson Dash 8s and then a "strange-looking 4-engined Dash 8" when we drove past the airport. I had never seen a Dash 7 until that point. Eventually, we switched airlines and flew (surprise, surprise) Paradise Island Airlines between Nassau and Palm Beach (Paradise Island Int'l was only 6 miles from our house). George

I was wondering when someone was going to do a Henson bird. They are back to using the Piedmont callsign again. Good job!!!I went down and toured their facility in Salisbury about 9-10 years ago. They have routes all up and down the east coast.

Hello again,I just downloaded and test-flew your repaint from BWI to Martin State. You did a FANTASTIC job with not only the logos, but the accuracy in the colour! Well done! I'll look forward to some BWI-SBY and DCA-Hagerstown flights in the near future! Thanx again!George
