Aleutian Airways SAAB 2000

A SAAB 2000 in passenger configuration was transiting through Seattle.  It was registered to PenAir in Alaska and had apparently been repainted since it was now showing up in the colors of Aleutian Airways.  I had not heard of Aleutian Airways but it isn’t hard to work out where it serves.  The plane arrived with a PenAir registration still showing but it looked like it was applied temporarily so, presumably, it is going to have a new registration before too long.

They didn’t spend too long on the ground before departing for Alaska.  They were heavy for the longer flight but still off the ground quite quickly compared to the full length of BFI’s runway.  Then they looped off around the south end of the area before climbing overhead and en route to their next stop.  The livery is a bit retro but I did like the look of it.
