A nicely designed bird on this early morning flight (before the haze comes up over the forest). And good to see you made it over the hills with all these Rucksacks on board.

Excellent flight Martyn!  What plane too.  I've never seen it before either.  I like that odd looking vertical stab.  Never seen anything like it.  And the scenery is amazing.  It's on my to do list for sure.  And the last one was my favorite.

That there's a Pilatus 'Porter', a Swiss company.  There were several in use in Alaska - very STOL.  This freeware is by Tim 'Piglet' Conrad who has several hangars full of freeware to his credit.

great set of shots, and one fantastic plane...  !

 

I fly the Pilatus Porter quite a lot for it's excellent STOL feature.

There is also a repaint for it with "Susie Air" colours and logo... great for when flying in PNG    :)

Great shots and a lovely flight, Martyn, but I find it hard to love that 'plane. Don't know what it is about it - I quite often really fall for the fugly ones, but . . .
