I tried searching, but wasn't successful (perhaps I didn't look hard enough): I recall in the mid-'90s, when Resorts Int'l (Merv Griffin) had control of both Paradise Island Airlines and Chalk's. During that time, both the PIA fleet of Dash-7s and the Chalk's fleet of G-73Ts were painted in a similar color scheme. One day, I was out spotting (I begged my mother to take me), and I noticed a Twin Otter in the same livery, parked on the eastern part of the ramp at Paradise Island Airport. I had never seen it before, or since. Is there anyone in the know who can tell me if Paradise Island Airlines actually operated the Twotter, even for a short time?

Well how about that! Was it ever placed into commercial service? I never saw it arriving or departing from PID, but perhaps it was used for charter work to Walker's Cay or Bimini? Thanks so much for posting that photo! Cheers,
