Additional Historical Information

Following the fire damage that occurred while with Skydive Chicago, the remains of the aircraft were returned to Ashe Aircraft Enterprises in Springbank to be rebuilt for Fayard Enterprises. The resulting aircraft, named “Frankenotter” developed a bit of a cult following in the Skydive community owing to its unique look. Although a lot of Twin Otters would look quite similar if they were left unpainted after a rebuild, Fayard's N226CS celebrated the art of creating a new Twin Otter from what started as spare parts.
