View Full Version : Twin Otter

An odd question I suppose, but...does anyone here have a 5,10, or 15 Thousand Hour pin that they could scan and post here?

Since I'm still on one, I feel no real nostalgia for them (although my first one is going in a museum now:( ). Having said this, I realized the other day that a great many of our pilots have extensive experience on type, but we have no form of recognition for their accomplishment. I enquired with DeHavilland, but they have no more, nor sketches of the original pins.

As I understand them, the pins were the DH Gipsy Moth emblem surmounted on a navy blue circle, with a sky blue band surrounding it, and "X Hours, Twin Otter" on the band. The gypsy moth was plated silver gold or platinum depanding on the hour level.

Truth or fiction?
