Photo Update

A couple of very nice contributed images this afternoon, both with roots back to Air Illinois who were a significant Twin Otter operator in the U.S. Midwest.

After departing Air Illinois, MSN 218 N604MA was sold in Papua New Guinea. The photograph below was taken prior to delivery in Mexia, TX where the aircraft was refurbished. This aircraft has been with Airlines PNG since 1990, and is still in service - in fact today it has flight plans filed from Port Moresby to Kerema, Kikori and Kamusi.
