Here is a Twin Pioneer that was parked at the Woodcock Airport on the Skeena River east of Terrace BC. Owner was North Coast Air Service. I believe the aircraft was dismantled and trucked to Quesnel BC in the 1990's.

Terr Air at the Lost Liver airport. I think this was also moved to Quesnel, it would be nice to get an update as to their whereabouts

bronson - you can be in a hurry or you can be in an airplane, but don't ever get into both at once

I believe the white and orange Twin Pin is STX which was owned by Jack Anderson in the late 60’s and then went to John Rolls in ‘73 or thereabouts.

Yes, it has the Orange NCAS paint job. Did the fuselage of the first Terr Air Twin Pin end up in Watson by the Lake. Crashed on the north Canol or something?

I think Rolls May have had 2 Twin Pioneers. Not absolutely certain of that though. There was the fuselage of one sitting in a storage yard at Watson Lk back in the 80’s. Might have been STX.

I'm pretty sure there were 2. The one sitting at the Ross river airport was a replacement for the one that ended up on the Canol HiWay and then Watson Lake
