  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • The Bombardier Q400, registered as N435QX and proudly operated by Alaska Airlines in partnership with the University of Washington Huskies, represents a unique fusion of regional aviation and collegiate spirit. This turboprop aircraft was introduced into the Alaska Airlines fleet to serve as a flying tribute to the University of Washington's Huskies, fostering a sense of school pride and unity among students, alumni, and fans. The Q400 has not only redefined regional air travel but also created an exciting connection between higher education and the world of aviation.
  • During the 1970's, de Havilland Canada was busy with the production of their 4-engine, 50-seat STOL Dash 7 - DHC-7 - transport. However, to meet the airlines' request for a similar yet more economical and faster aircraft, the Dash 8 - DHC-8 - was developed. The prototype Dash-8-100 first flew in 1983 and entered service in late 1984. The initially released Dash-8-100 was smaller than the Dash-7 and typically operated in a 37-seat configuration. In 1992, Bombardier Aerospace purchased de Havilland Canada and released an updated version of the popular Dash 8 as the Dash-8-200, which featured more powerful engines and increased cruising speed. A stretched version of the Dash-8-200, known as the Dash 8-300, eventually went into service with the original 50-seat capacity of the earlier Dash-7. Bombardier discontinued the Dash-8 100, 200 and 300 versions between 2005 and 2009, replacing it with the larger and more capable Dash-8-400, simply marketed as the Q400.
  • N435QX's history with Alaska Airlines and its Huskies partnership is marked by its role in uniting fans of the university and providing travelers with a memorable flying experience. The aircraft is adorned with the iconic University of Washington Huskies' colors and branding, inside and out. Its spacious cabin and efficient turboprop engines have made it a favorite for passengers traveling to destinations within the Pacific Northwest, demonstrating the aircraft's reliability and performance.
  • This replica captures the essence of the aircraft, from its vibrant design to the iconic livery. For those who appreciate the significance of this flying tribute and its role in fostering school spirit, this 1:400 scale model is a must-have addition to any collection. Display it with pride and celebrate the special connection between education, regional aviation, and the vibrant culture of the University of Washington Huskies.
