The only Saab I know of with an APU is N541BC at IBC. I believe it has an executive configuration so I doubt that the weight of an APU would cause them much trouble unlike our 34 seat configuration. Now a prop brake would be nice but I too heard that they have issues with wearing out. Probably not economical.

So Miami never opened, Puerto Rico flying went away, and now Billings is closing. I sure do hope Silver is looking at expanding to some other markets ( aside from some other Fort Myers - Key West Route ) because right now it just seems like they are shriveling up!

Gotta remember that Silver added the ATL and IAD networks this past year, and recently added MCN-ATL and MCO. So if 3M is not committed to expanding the Billings market, then its time to GTFO and look for strategies elsewhere. JMHO!
