This shot, taken at VERY long range is of an Aircraft Renovation and Repair Company based on the field..
This lot appeared, a few visits ago, between arriving and leaving, (I was leaving here)..
Now I am sure they are all Turboprop jobs, but could be two models.. I would like to know what they are.. Most of the Airlines I don't know either, so that doesn't help me lol
Good luck, please!

I think there is one DHC-8 or Q400 in the mix - the t-tail over on the right side.
A quick rummage through Wiki lead me to the SAAB 340 for the smaller turboprops
The ones with the mainly-blue tails (red tip) and white pseudo-US flag are US Airways I believe.

My first stop was to ask how many airlines are there in the world today (none of these markings looked familiar to me). I found, "There are approximately 100 airlines in North America (USA, Canada and Mexico), 26 airlines in Central America and The Carribean, 13 airlines in South America, 76 airlines in Europe, 15 airlines in Africa, 14 airlines in the Middle East, 36 airlines in Asia, 16 airlines in Austalia and Oceania and 1 airline in Antarctica. That adds up to 297...WOW. Now to boil things down a wee bit.
My best guess after carefully looking at the configuration of the turboprop planes...most are Saab 340s. There are planes there from US Airways, Delta, and Northwest (now merged with Delta). And there is at least one more airline represented that I can't identify at all (yet). But I'll keep looking.
Great quiz Rob! Thanks for the workout.

Wll, looks like Bill's done all the detective work here... I like airplanes, but I wouldn't have had a clue. I'd have just said they're pretty! LOL!
Nice capture, Rob!
I think I'm gonna have to put you and Bill on retainer as aircraft identification consultants for T.N.A.
