The DHC-6 Twin Otter is a 19-passenger STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) utility aircraft developed by de Havilland Canada. Due to its high rate of climb and STOL abilities this twin aircraft is perfect for cargo, regional passenger, commercial skydiving  and MEDEVAC operations. The DHC-6 Twin Otter is flying along the south coast of Ellesmere Island. Ellesmere Island is  the world’s tenth largest island and Canada’s third largest island. This large mountainous island is part of the Qikiqtaaluk Region of the Canadian territory of Nunavut.

Nanchang CJ-6 Dives Deep & Rolls Over

Introduced in 1960 the Nanchang CJ-6 is a two seat primary trainer aircraft, powered by a 260-hp Zhuzhou Huosai HS-6 radial piston engine.  A common, but mistaken, belief is that the CJ-6 is a Chinese version of the Yakovlev Yak-18A. The CJ-6A, an improved 285 horse version, is a popular hobby plane. A CJ-6 can cost as little as $75,000 in the US resale market. The aircraft appears on the civil register of the USA, Australia, UK, South Africa and other countries.
