In 1974, the original Metro models were replaced by the SA226-TC Metro II after about 20 Metros and about 30 Merlin IVAs had been built.[note 2] Among the changes made were larger, squared-oval windows and optional provision for a small Rocket-Assisted Take Off(RATO) rocket in the tail cone, this being offered to improve takeoff performance out of "hot & high" airfields in the event of an engine failure.
REALLY GREAT DEAL! This 1980 Metro II is a one in a million and it's ready to take off. This aircraft has only 16, 078 Airframe Hours two TPE331-3 engines. You can checkout the spec sheet by clicking the link provided. Download Spec Sheet
