Mornin' all!

I came across this picture in one of our daily Metro newspapers today. It's a pic of Myriam Bédard (the chic that ilegally ran off with her daughter and headed to Maryland).

Here she is boarding the fuzz' personal aircraft. But what is that thing! Anyone know?

I'd bet for a Pilatus PC-12:

I reckon you must be right Dux. I looked up the name on Google and it looks like the same craft. I was surprised because it looks large enough to be a twin, but it only has one engine. But then, the Cessna Caravan is a largish craft with only one engine as well. Thanks for identifying it. I can now resume my day. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Allegedly!

Given the relationship she has with her ex he could have told her privately - "sure honey go ahead and take the kid for a trip..." then changed his mind with the plan to screw her. However, She is a nut case lately. (I mean alledegly a nutcase).<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I can confirm that that plane is a Pilatus PC-12. How would I know you ask? My father flies one of the RCMP's helis, and thus shares the hangar with that aircraft.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

May not be a twin but it has a turboprop rated at 1200shp. That'll get the job done nicely.

One of the few modern aircraft I actually like.

A pretty hot number actually,

Max cruise speed is 270 Knots TAS.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
