I have spent some time to bring Twin Otter Archive up to date over the past ten days, and sent approximately 50 updated history pages to Neil, which he has uploaded. Following that, an additional 18 new photos were sent, and those too have been done.

Going through the individual files for each aircraft, concentrating initially on MSN's 1-200 I have prepared an additional 187 new photos (from the slide scans) and 30 new photos (from print scans).

Below are a few from the scanned prints.
