The outcome of the recent accident (see yesterday's blog) involving DHC-6-100 N122PM at Fentress, TX is seen in the photo below. Other than shedding a portion of the port wing, the aircraft appears to remain relatively undamaged, at least on the surface. Although N122PM is among the oldest operational Twin Otters, I've seen many others with far worse damage return to service.

N122PM was originally delivered to ARAMCO for operation in Saudi Arabia (leased from Miami Aviation Corp.) in 1966, as seen in the photo below:
