This is a stunning livery.  So I'm showing it off here now that I've fixed my screenshots.

Ahh, nothing better than the Swiss Army knife of Tprops, the Pilatus, which I have for Xplane11.  Almost flew one once, on Bearskin airlines into Dryden Ontario but instead I was routed to International Falls, picked up by my Canadian hosts, and driven to Dryden in their beat up old truck.  We drove across a frozen lake to get to Dryden which my host said would save us 40 minutes.  As soon as we got on the Lake, much like the frozen lake of Lost In Space, he ordered me to roll my window down to the subzero air outside.  I curiously asked why and was not anxious until he said "if the ice breaks" with a wry grin on his face.  He told me of the story of the snow sweeper Dryden bought for the lake, which had an exit door in its roof.  The first time they drove it to the ice he said the driver suddenly heard "glug glug glug" and had to exit the snow sweeper as it started to sink to the bottom of the lake.

When my colleague was picked up several days later I asked the driver to repeat the story for him and take him across the gradually thawing and shifting dry lake.  My partner came to me very shaken and not in a good mood at all that day and he had to work the graveyard shift.  Before then our host drove us to his home and also to Dryden's pride and joy, first A&W which I loved, then their rec center which was rather dull.  But the excitement picked up after lunch at his home when he showed off his rifle collection and when he showed it off, he absent minded pointed what we suspected was a loaded weapon at each of us when he showed it off.  My partner and I looked at each other with knowing looks, then we said we had upset stomachs and needed to get back to the hotel.  It was only then we realized that Canada also had a law--the right to arm bears, lol.... 

But we also knew such weapons in the land of real bears were essential which is why many US Citizens are thankful they are allowed such weapons, especially in the more rural and spartan areas of the country.  Ironically in the heart of the city where I live weapons are much fewer, weapon violence is rare and usually sadly domestic violence which is why my father, a war veteran of WWII and Korea, always told us not to have weapons if we could help it.  But I suppose as one grows older, less able to physically defend oneself against human or wild predators such weapons if locked securely from their grandchildren give peace of mind, just like our air force and other armed services do and police forces, secret service and so on give in the US or other home countries.
