We are working on a series of videos showing Twin Otter flying in Nepal in the mid eighties. I had the privilege to fly the UN Twin Otter on an ICAO mission. It was indeed “Stick and Rudder” flying involved which is the basics of Airmanship.
The first video is already launched on the front page as a teaser. It is showing the first Twin Otter Flights on Manang Airport at 11,000 feet ASL (Above Sea Level). We were heartily welcomed by the King of the Manang, who insisted that I should ride his horse, which I gladly accepted albeit I was a better pilot than a horseman, as the video shows.
