First flown on 27 March 1975, the DHC-7 "Dash 7" is a 50-seat airliner with short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities.  113 were built by the time production ended in 1988.

The Canadian Forces used two DHC-7s as VIP transports.  The U.S. Army purchased several in the early 1990s to be used as low-profile intelligence aircraft.
