First Picture First Flying

MSN 916 C-GVVA is seen below on arrival in Victoria yesterday, with thanks to Tim Martin. This is the second one for First Flying, the previous being MSN 915 C-GVEP which is painted in the same scheme, but featuring different colours. 

The new Twin Otters are expected to bring the type back into use again in Japan's Ryukyu Islands where Southwest Airlines began flying legacy DHC-6-300's in 1973. First Flying operates a varied fleet including helicopters, single-engined Cessna's and Britten-Norman Islanders from their base at Yao, in Osaka Prefecture and in Okinawa in the Ryukyu chain.
