Building Twin Otters, in time-lapse

Twin Otter

The production facility for Viking’s Twin Otter Series 400 is seen in time-lapse in this video. Twin Otters have transported many smokejumpers over the last few decades.

I looked, but didn’t see any CL-415’s in the background being built. Viking  bought the rights from Bombardier in 2016 for the scoopers, but to date have not publicly committed to manufacturing more.

    1. No CL 415s but if you could see out those windows in the background, you would see a pair of 215s outside. There are six more across the field including three of the ex-Newfoundland ‘ peas and carrots’ machines. Its my impression they are candidates for conversion to 215Ts, though I may be wrong.
