    Otters on the Seal River

    After landing on the Seal River, both aircraft taxied into the shore where they anchored for the day. The pilots joined us for the short hike to the best fishing area and, at the end of the day, we all treked back to the aircraft for takeoff. The blunt noses on these aircraft are the result of the very reliable air-cooled radial engines they use, made by Pratt & Whitney and rated at 600 HP, providing for a top speed of 160 mph (260 kph).

    Otter Bush Plane

    For our fishing trip, a total of 18 people were flown 100 miles north to Hudson Bay in two venerable bush planes. Otters, this one was built in 1957, are the workhorses of northern Canada and are amazingly durable. Otters were specially developed as a tough bush plane, with 466 of them being built between 1951-1967. Here one of ours is moving away from the jetty at Radisson as it prepares for lift-off.

    In the Cockpit

    Inside an Otter

    We had a good view of the countryside as we flew north. As you can see from the photo of the pilot in the cockpit of our airplane, this craft has had a 'working' life judging from the condition of its bulkhead. Many of the controls are driven by a hand pump from the cockpit - a simple system for the far north which has proven to be very reliable over the years!
