Twin Otter Update for 26-Feb-2017



While doing some exploring on FB, I ran across quite a few Twin Otter pictures from various pages and groups. Here are a few, with thanks to the original photographers.


MSN 343 below was leased by Westflight for the 1985 and 1986 seasons, after having started life with Wardair as CF-WAG. It remains in service today with the Washington Group as N167WC.

Most often referred to as "Taco" due to its previous operator Aerotaca, MSN 608 spent a good portion of its early life in Colombia, with a fairly brief gig in the U.S.V.I. in the mid 1980's. Sadly, it crashed in 2006 in French Polynesia with Air Moorea.
