Welcome to our data base.

844 de Havilland DHC-6 Legacy Twin Otter aircraft in some limited public detail.

150 Viking Air DHC-6-400 added so far.

Images added - 5,297 - approximate total.

Many, many more await patiently in our archive hangar. Only so many hours in a day eh?

Updates here will be few and far between - busy with other projects!

• GREEN Current Airframe - Operational

• Amber Extant but non-operational (all, or major parts of airframe exist but are unflyable; spares recovery).

• RED Written Off / Destroyed - has not been rebuilt & future rebuild unlikely.

• Gray • No current accurate info (Unable) to determine current status, location or operator. (Can you help?)

Bookmark this page to keep an eye on things - steady as she goes!

The detailed history is first, followed by images.

Some entries at present only have a few images and no data showing, although this has been transcribed, and researched, it still has to be added - gradually as time and energy permit!

Welcome to our Twin Otter web site for casual research!

This website was freely donated, and migrated over in 2018 - as a solid foundation to Erik's new website ventures.

We, of course, wish him every success and thank him for his previous and ongoing research and his website.

Meanwhile we will, as amateur de Havilland Canada / Viking DHC-6 Twin Otter enthusiasts here at remain in this format, similar to our other websites on the DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter, as an essential backup archive of the many images and research, collected over the years by our dear friend, the late Mike Ody.

This is a private venture, solely for the entertainment of Neil and Ian, in the original 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 when we can, every now and then. We are not experts by any means and cannot devote our full time efforts on maintaining this website.

We endeavour to keep 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.

Chip in if you can!
