The Twin Otter - otherwise affectionately known by those who have flown her as the Twatter.

Some Twatters have been taken care of through the years, some barely used at all. Some are a bit rough around the edges, but once you get in there it's really not so bad and you kind of forget what the outside looks like as long as the ride is good. Some Twatters make funny noises when you get them fired up, some don't. Some are just plain neglected and shouldn't be. If properly equipped, you can get them wet and they will take you places you've never been before.

One thing that can be agreed on is that all Twatters can be satisfying in their own way and there is a Twatter for everyone.
