                                         in 1947, and the resultant line was known as Wien Consolidated.   The small carrier had five aircraft
                                         at that time, one of which was this Twin Otter, seen here in this superb shot by Peter de Groot, on a

                                         ern Alaska out of Fairbanks, Anchorage and Bethel.   This early Twin Otter was sold off in 1977.
