Widerøe’s popular Twin Otter is history. The last one left Båtsfjord on 31 March 2000 after 32 years in Widerøe’s Flyverselskap’s service. Together with the short-haul network, the aircraft type meant a revolution in Norwegian aviation. What is more natural than a memory book about the Twin Otter – the little, green – the crow of Widerøe – crank – workhorse – struggling and – faithful storm bird. The book about the Twin Otter is a nostalgic flashback and a wonderful mix of transport and district political history, airy experiences, adventure and mood. Between the covers you will meet representatives from all teams within Twin Otter’s sphere: The founder and veteran, Viggo Widerøe, former Minister of Transport Håkon Kyllingmark, Widerøe’s CEO, Per Arne Watle, professor of humor, Arthur Arntzen, the visual artist Dagfinn Bakke and the artist Kari Bremnes, both from Svolvær, VG artist and ørsting, Roar Hagen – and of course, Øystein Sunde, represented by his tribute to Twin Otteren, “Small and green”. Here are incredible stories from crew as well as from passengers, told with warm devotion to the small plane that has bound coastal Norway together.
