I have flown that aircraft many time in the past. Glad to see the old girl still earning its keep.
Beautful pic!
Better call MAACO! Needs a paint job.

Flew the Metro 1, 2 and 2a 35 years ago. The 2a was a 2 with a JATO in the tail, so we could take-off at a higher GTOW without having to uprate the Garretts. Was only used for engine fail on take-off. We always said it would just leave a smoke trail to the point of impact!

@rick1128 that's awesome! They're still going strong. I may actually end up flying them as my first turbine aircraft in a few years!

@ Paul: a JATO in a Metro? Now that catches my attention. I'd love to see that in action haha!
Great comment by Paul Kavanagh - Love it!
Loved flying as a pax in the Metro.
I'd sit up front if possible to watch the pilots working the yokes, etc.
Really a superb photograph!!
