VH-TGU  de Havilland Canada  DHC-6-200 Twin Otter                       (c/n  88)


                                      Delivered as a dash 100 in April 1968, this Twin Otter was converted to dash 200 status a year
                                      later.  It is seen above at Adelaide in this shot in March 1970 by Paul Daw in the 'blue tail T'
                                      livery.    In 1974 it was reregistered P2-TGU in the New Guinea register, and later as P2-RDB.
                                      It then wound up, oddly, at a local airport not ten miles from where I now live as a skydiver
                                      aircraft at Lousburg, North Carolina as N669JW.  (The FAA still called it a -100)      Owner
                                      was Fayard Enterprises who owned the so-called North Raleigh Airport and, long before the
                                      9/11 fiasco made it a very hard time for me to take photos on their facility.  Their nonsense
                                      reason that they were performing 'military contracts' and ergo their Twin Otters were classified.!
                                     Anyway, Fayard now longer operates N669JW and, so far as i know, it is still flying as a sky-
                                     diver platform, probably in Delaware.
