Well, I thought it was absolutely great as I got to sit in the first row in the middle seat of the Twin Otter (which essentially translated to a jump seat position on the DHC-6 as there is no door between the pax cabin and the flight deck, of course) and got to witness and photograph the approach and landing at Saba. Wow! It reminded me of my time with Era Aviation up in Alaska when we would fly into short strips (not all of them paved) on board Era's Twin Otter aircraft. As a local on Saba explained to me, "Relax, mon, and have another rum drink. WinAir be OK".
