Buffalo Airways flies daily C-47, Electra, and DC-3 flights. Another DC-3 (PT6 engines) flies over my place almost daily doing survey work. 737-200's are buzzing around people to mining outposts. Not news.

Sorry to learn that Island Airlines in Ohio, which once flew Ford Trimotors to the Lake Erie Islands - a thrilling ride in the '60s - ceased operating in 1985. Wonder what happened to its four aircraft.

Per the title, there are still a few A model Bonanzas out there! The spawn is still in production.

I was fortunate to be one of the few pilots to operate Air Canada's 1937 Lockheed L10A Electra CF-TCC...Although logging only 48hrs in 2006-2008 on special anniversary, promotional and charity flights, it was nice to re-live the the hands-on operations of that era... much different than the digital environment pilots are accustomed to now.
