VH-TGU de Havilland Canada
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
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.
