CAHS Journal Celebrates Twin Otters!

From editor Terry Higgins (also of

“Journal 49-4 features six articles on the de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter, and its ‘reborn’ Viking Air Series 400 Twin Otter, in celebration of the type’s 40th year of  Canadian military service. The CF/RCAF centric articles are balanced with a short piece on the type’s origins, another on the floats designed exclusively for this aircraft, and an overview of the Series 400’s development.

And what’s a celebration without colour! Canadian photographers and photo collectors alike have contributed images to grace both the centre-spread and back cover, including a striking panorama of nearly 40 Twin Otters all parked in one spot (taken from another Twin Otter!).” DMC: I would add to that the gorgeous painting by Helene Girard, one of my favourite aviation artists!
