Nicaragua Bound

It's been bright and sunny for a week.  But cold.  When this Turbo Otter arrived on it's way to Nicaragua, we all volunteered to act as the flight engineer.

They stopped over for a day or two while we do some fixes.

The Turbo Otter is one of 4 float planes going to Nicaragua to be used to fly tourists around the country from Managua to the Caribbean.   Airlines operating float planes are a rarity in Central America.  The Chief Pilot for the venture is Steve Lane, an experienced West Coast pilot who has been making his home in Nicaragua for the last few months. 

Bob took a fantastic shot of the Spit from across the river.  From left to right: Corilair, our Eagle Hangar, Silver King Lodge, our Spit Hangar and Vancouver Island Air.  These days make us forget the rain, which, by the way, is supposed to start again tomorrow night....
