The Otter and Twin Otter have been used as self-loading forest-fire fighting waterbombers, flying paddy wagons in police manhunts, and inter-urban airbuses. Otters were bought by the US Army because they could out-perform helicopters and US Navy Otters mapped Antarctica. Otters have made both war and peace, as front-line supply haulers in Vietnam and as the backbone of the United Nations peacekeeping efforts in the Middle East. Lavishly illustrated, Otter & Twin Otter features two of the world's great aircraft with a compelling cast of characters -- the engineers, test pilots and bush pilots who have made the Otter and Twin Otter aviation legends.

The rainy season, terrain, and financial hardships have made the construction of highways and railroads nearly impossible in many parts of Africa. This lack of modern infrastructure has been overcome in some part by the development of air transportation. Hundreds of carriers--both small and large, government owned and private--have connected all parts of the continent. Together, they have had a tremendous impact on the African economy and the people. Country-by-country, this comprehensive reference work provides brief histories of over 700 airlines in 54 African nations. Each entry has the years of operation of the carrier, along with information on its origin, growth, and route structure. Aircraft usage, including registration numbers and nicknames, is covered in many cases. Any crashes involving aircraft in the carrier's fleet are also noted. An appendix gives the location of all major African airports.
