ATR 42 in Naples, FL

On a flight from Naples to Miami I was on an ATR 42. This is the biggest propeller plane I have ever been on! It held more than 40 people, in a “2 seat – row – 2 seat” configuration. Good headroom, overhead bins, storage under the seat in front.

The flight went over the Everglades at 11,000 feet on a sunny day, and you really got a good view of the swamp below.

This plane was surprizingly quiet for a propeller plane. Also, the storage was in the front behind the pilots, with entry in the rear. Most planes seem to have storage in the back or underneath.

Location: Naples Airport, Naples, Florida
Camera: Kodak DC240
