How to get in touch with us - TOA "at"

This website was freely donated, and migrated over in 2018 - as a solid foundation to Erik's new ventures. We, of course, wish him every success and thank him for his continued, somewhat erratic, hard work.

Meanwhile we will, however, as simple DHC-6 enthusiasts here at remain in this format, similar to our other websites on the DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter, as an essential, alternative backup archive of the many images and research, collected over the years by our friend Mike Ody.

This is a private venture for the entertainment of Neil and Ian, in the format and content they enjoy, you are welcome to browse. Since it is impossible to remove what was posted on the internet in the past, we plod merrily along, updating the best we can, every now and then. We are not experts by any means.

Oh yes - we are not in competition with, or have planned to upset anyone. <grin>

Hopefully keeping it interesting for everyone who appreciates the Twin Otter.

This website is not funded in any way, other than any welcome donation from viewers, like you.

This website is not affiliated in any way with Viking Aircraft Limited, although we are huge fans of that fine company. The content has been prepared from Public Information, the private research records of the late Michael J. Ody, and generous contributions from the authors, researchers, enthusiasts, photographers and spotters worldwide. Data from the Internet is also used - errors therefore may be included - so use at your own discretion.

Images freely added, alas, cannot be removed.

Images freely submitted in the past to "TwinOtterArchive" may also appear on "TwinOtterWorld" or vice versa.

Photo credits and locations when known. Corrections are always welcome.
