Air New England  DHC-6 Twin Otter 300   N386EX                  (c/n  248)


                                     By 1971 Air New England had commenced an aggressive expansion program and services were
                                     extended from Boston to as far north as Waterville, Maine and as far south as New York City.
                                     The Twin Otters were used to service the local runs to New Bedford, Hyannis, Marthas Vine-
                                     yard and Nantucket.   Above is an evocative shot by Howard Chaloner of a ANE Twin Otter
                                     loading at Lebanon, N.H. in August 1977.   Over a dozen Twin Otters (100s, 200s and 300s)
                                     were acquired, this one coming from Frontier Airlines in 1974.
