That's like docking a cat. A little thrust here, and a little thrust there.......i2f

I could dock a shopping mall if I had two props. Well, maybe a mini mall.:p

Using asymmetrical thrust with the two engines is pretty handy for maneuvering. However, the pucker factor may be a bit higher in the Otter. Scrap a dock on your boat and you rub it out. Barely ding a wing tip, prop or elevator and the plane will be grounded with potentially thousands in repairs.

Damn,,,,,just got lost over at UTube for about five minutes viewing airplane crashes etc. Even forgot for a few seconds how I ended up there. Unfortunately I get sucked into computer media to easily. :confused:
