Flown single Otter quite a bit. Fun airplane!

Viking Air have aquired most if not all the De Havilland : airframe rights . www.vikingair.com/viking-aircraft/dhc-6-twin-otter

Canadian made and All Their Aircrafts are Best Known.

Used to watch them at Ft Rucker . Liked watching the short field takeoffs and slow flying.

If you're passing through Oklahoma on your flight to AirVenture next month and would like to save some money on fuel, The Vintage Aircraft Association and Warbirds of America have received information that the Ada Regional Airport and Heartland Aviation FBO Services have partnered up to offer a $0.40/gal discount to Warbirds and Antique Aircraft!

Airport Manager Chris Somers recently shared the following:
"I'm the Airport Manager of Ada Regional Airport located in Southeastern Oklahoma.

I wanted to reach out and let you know, Ada Regional Airport (ADH) is a Warbird and Antique friendly airport and would love to see you all here!

Ada is a progressive, quality-oriented community located in the rolling hills of southern Oklahoma. Imbued with ingenuity, a pioneering spirit, and hospitality, we've been described as a place where the West meets the South!

Incorporated in 1901, it now has a population of 18,000. Ada is located within easy driving distances of three major cities and is a Main Street City and a Tree City USA Member. Ada is large enough to offer many bigger city amenities, such as a four-year university (East Central University), and a thriving business climate, with plenty of shops, restaurants, and hotels to choose from, yet still small enough to provide a safe and fun place to raise a family.
Ada is home to a world-class EPA water laboratory, and the home of the nation's most progressive tribe, the Chickasaw Nation, and also historic Wintersmith Park. Ada is birthplace to the state's first native-born governor and longtime U.S. Senator Robert S. Kerr, and country music superstar Blake Shelton.

Ada Public Schools was the first school district to implement the AOPA STEM Curriculum in Oklahoma and is 1 of 5 Schools of Excellence within the state. Other state AOPA STEM programs have used the Ada Public Schools program as the basis.

Ada Regional Airport is home to the Commemorative Air Force’s Sierra Hotel A-26 Group, General Aviation Modifications, Inc. (GAMI), Tornado Alley Turbo, and Heartland Aviation. Ada Regional Airport and Heartland Aviation. Ada Regional Airport and Heartland Aviation FBO Services have partnered up to offer a $0.40/gal discount to Warbirds and Antique Aircraft.

Come see us, you're always welcome here!

Please let me know if there's anything I can assist you with, We look forward to seeing you".

Congratulations to Jeff Hargis, owner of our Plane of the Week!

He shares, "1948 Stinson Voyager 108-3. it was restored in flying condition in 2010 by Bill Kieffer. I purchased it from him in 2017. the plane had been setting in an open t hanger since the 1970s. The plane had been owned by a WWII B-24 Bomber pilot. After the war he bought the 108 in California and flew it to his farm in north Missouri. He did not put many hours on the plane. The log books were stolen from him during a move, so the only records on the plane are FAA till 1955, and new logs from the restoration. N6819M is the identifier and I keep it on my private strip south of Kansas City, MO".

That is a real beauty!! I built a model of a 108 last year to hang in my computer room.

I grew up in a Stinson Voyager. They are beautiful and such a joy to fly.

Congratulations Jeff Hargis!!

That is a beautiful plane!!

Beautiful restoration and color ! Makes me wonder ? Got a ride in a 108 by a former WW2 bomber pilot in our reserve unit at Davis fld ,Muskogee .early 60's.

She's a gorgeous plane. Even more beautiful in person!

Hi Jeff, what a beautiful airplane. I'm restoring a 108-3 right now and would appreciate you sharing the type of paint and colors. It looks like the original and that is what am wanting to do.

Absolutely Beautiful

One sweet Stinson!

Beautiful story and airplane Sir❤️🇺🇸😎
