de Havilland Dash 7

Larry Milberry, Aviation in Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson 1979
The first Dash 7 prototype flies over the Toronto Island airport past downtown and the newly completed CN Tower. This four engine STOL plane was popular with airlines flying to small airports. 
The first production units entered service in 1978 and 113 were built before being superseded by the Dash 8, a two engine aircraft with less STOL capability. About 30 remain in service, and the aircraft above resides at the Canada Aviation and Space museum in Ottawa.
