  1. The King Air series which includes the B1900 has separate front wind screens for the left and right seat pilot. Which one was it in the 2016 incident? Both? Left? Right? Details matter.

    In any event, doesn't seem to have hurt this former Great Lakes Airlines freight dog much in the hard landing based on the flight out of Cheyenne just 12 hours later on Sept. 8th into Denver. No flight since. Will be interesting to know the hours of the PIC here, specifically in type.
