Jacksons in Manitoba

#1 Post by 8675309 » Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:22 pm

Does anyone know if Jacksons used to have a Twin Otter at one time or do they service one for an auto parts recycle company?

They were servicing a 206 on amfibs for an auto parts recycling company.
I don't know if WT got a twin otter but I'd be very surprised if he did,

Someone I know bumped into a guy in Toronto Pearson on their way across the country. This guys said he owned a twin otter on floats for private use. Showed pictures. Says he worked with an auto recycling company and was heading to wpg. Only private twotter I know if was Max Ward's. Says Jacksons does the maintenance. Jacksons air has been gone I think sense 2007. I called BS on the story but have been wrong before.

Shaun Jackson owns Adventure Air in Lac Du bonnet.
They did the maint on a 206 that is owned by an Auto Parts guy in MB.
The owner piled it into a golf course a couple years ago, case of too much air in the tanks if I recall but they rebuilt it.
I'd be pretty surprised if he got a Twin Otter, maybe he won the lottery or the auto parts wrecking business is better than I thought.

I seem to recall Parsons Airways Northern had a Twin Otter for a brief period of time but that was many moons ago and only a rumor.

The average pilot, despite the somewhat swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Max Ward's Twotter is owned and flown by the Manitoba government now. Sounds like he left some cool notes in the manual as well.

Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?
