Last I heard some were still flying at Colgan.

N35SZ, Clogan
N40SZ was the one that collapsed a main at IAD - beer cans now.
N121CQ (the white ghost) sold to a private firm in Florida.

I'd have to go thru the log book to get the rest of the tail and search airliners.net i suppose

121CQ and 118SD were the biggest PsOS in our fleet. The ex-Eagle Saabs are great on the other hand. Anyone know if we (Colgan) still have 35 Shocka Zulu flying around? I love the old school rotating beacons.

No A models left in the Colgan Fleet. I actually did not mind SZ. Lots of leg room in the back. It was nicer inside than many of the other SAABs we picked up from Chicago Express and Eagle.
