Note: Twin Otter Archive is being archived and re-vamped with a new format.

This will take some time. (Started 31 August 2018)

Meanwhile, Erik Johannesson has built Twin Otter World.

IMPORTANT ITEM: Those of you who know me well will have had an e-mail about this subject already.Thank you for helping Erik. Here is his story. We have worked together for many a year. He has been a great help with my DHC-2, DHC-3 and DHC-6 websites during that time. We need to help him in his hour of great need. He will have to re-locate, probably away from the very expensive Toronto are. I will let Erik explain in his own words.

Please click on his photo - thank you.

Update: As of Monday 08 October 2018 his GoFundMe is almost half way to target! Wonderful participation by 55 folk so far!!

This website migrated over there in 2018. We will, however, remain in this format as an alternative archive.

This website is not affiliated in any way with Bombardier Aerospace, or Viking Aircraft Limited, although we are huge fans of these two fine companies. The content has been prepared from Public Information, the private research records of the late Michael J. Ody, and generous contributions from the authors, enthusiasts, photographers and spotters worldwide. Images freely added, alas, cannot be removed.
