Do the US Army Golden Knights now fly a Dash 8 for parachute jumps?

Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:43 pm

Hello all,

From the official Facebook page.

I can’t tell if this is a very good photoshop or a legitimate picture. In the bottom of one of the pictures there is a Dash 8-300 in the full Golden Knights livery. It seems to be configured as their new jump aircraft. But I can’t find any other sources or pictures anywhere. Can someone clarify? I know they have been using the Fokker F-27 forever.

Hopefully not, but in reality, the C-31/F-27 must getting old and will eventually get replaced.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!
