Swiss Beech 1900

The Beechcraft 1900 is a 19-passenger, pressurized twin-engine turboprop airplane manufactured by the Beechcraft Division of the Raytheon Company (now Hawker Beechcraft). It was designed, and is primarily used, as a regional airliner. It is also used as a freight aircraft and for corporate transport.

The aircraft is designed to carry passengers in all weather conditions from airports with relatively short runways.

The aircraft is appearing as part of the Air Tattoo's SkyLift 2012 operational theme.
