    Quest "Air Force"

    Ars Technica has a nice article about the "Air Force" of Quest Diagnostics, including some PC-12s, Barons and Embraer Phenom 100s.

    The "PC-12" pictured in the article has the tail number N702QD which is not assigned according to the FAA registry. The registry says N702QD used to be assigned to a Socata TBM 700, but it was deregistered on May 2, 2017.

    The reason I looked it up is because the airplane identified as a PC-12 in the Ars Technica article is clearly a TBM, not a Pilatus PC-12.

    Aside from that obvious error, it's interesting that Quest Diagnostics needs its own air force to fly lab samples around the country.

    That’s not the Quest Air Force. This is the Quest Air Force. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DKhQg-GvynE
