Slayer 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.

Minnewaska 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.
