Where the drums are is Quttinirpaaq National Park. The Twin Otter is in Eureka.

I love the Maldivian twotters CLguy! Very nice--really liked the patterns with them all lined up.

Thanks Prairie Chicken! Unfortunately I can't take credit for the picture. It was taken by another Canadian working there.

I see one of my babies in those last pics. So North-Wright are the new RO of CSW, but I don't see CSX on the register. Anyone know where she went?

She looks good in the new livery. Did you have to paint her because everyone scattered when the red & while showed up? :P

CSW elevated a few heart rates when she was about the YT. General thing was the paint scheme was spotted by a heli guy, reported and everyone within 100 miles scattered for the hills!

It changed hands last year, was in Whitehorse for a couple years with Alkan then bought by North Wright out of The Wells. Apparently it had the electrical system retrofitted with the standard 300 series layout as well.

Yup, I believe folks would scatter--until word got out she was no longer TC. A couple of us took TC's red & white amphib Beaver around Great Bear one year and around Great Slave another. Plummer's Lodge were flying a red & white Beaver at the same time. I heard later it took a while for the Plummer's pilot to realize why everyone were scattering ahead him--and TC were chuckling because he was doing their work for them.

I would image that would have been an expensive retro. Those twotters were quite different than a standard 300. Thanks for the update.
