Today, 47 years later we are pleased to announce that a new project is underway. In the near future the following website will become active. This is a work in progress, and the first phase will provide a detailed history & photo archive of the first 100 machines produced at Downsview.
There are three dedicated people working pretty well full time on this project, myself, along with Ian Macintosh and Neil Aird. Together we are turning some 20,000 pages of mostly hand-written records into the definitive Twin Otter individual airframe history archive. We hope to accomplish this by building from the highly detailed notes of our friend Michael J. Ody, along with additional research prepared by our team of Ian, Neil and myself.
