    Thanks for this. When watching the video, my mind couldn’t decide if it was a DHC-4 or -5 because it had elements of both. Now I know why. It was a DHC-4T. Great pilots.

    I posted this on Gizmodo on March 21st …. it took about 5 minutes of searching the web.

    “Its not much of a secret the company is called Flightworks Inc. The aircraft which has some history is apparently N124DG … Its now is a DHC-4T Turbo Caribou

    There is also a big demand for used Casa 212′s these days for use in Afghanistan ”
