Re: Twin Otters on the Equator: Air Kiribati, Tarawa to Abemama (TRW-AEA-TRW)

Thanks for a fascinating report from a part of the world I would love to explore.
Brings back memories of when Kiribati had an international airline--Air Tungaru which flew a 727-100 Tarawa-Christmas Island-Honolulu in the early 1980s.
