JA8972 de Havilland Canada DHC-8 of R.A.C
Ryukyu Air Commuter of Japan
Field Aviation conducted crew training on behalf of de Havilland Canada and this has to be one of the most unusual Operators to grace the ramp. Interestingly, de Havilland Canada at Downsview had not painted the horizontal stabiliser yellow, and the Aircraft was to be returned to Downsview to be corrected, when photographed it was about to make the short flight back to DHC for painting.
