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,

Wow that's absolutely gorgeous! Never knew they had a twotter. I hope someone has more info on it. I miss the 7's so much too.
