                                  Formosa Airlines was founded in 1966 primarily as a crop dusting outfit.  From those agricultural
                                  beginnings it developed into a full blown (albeit small) airline linking Taipei and Kaohsiung with
                                  Orchid Island, Green Island and Taitung.   This Bell was one of a number of helicopters flown by
                                  the airline in the 1970s.  Seen here at Chung Shan Airport, Taipei.
