A Twin Otter lands on skis in Norman Wells, Northwest Territories, Canada. Twin Otters are commonly used in the north as bush planes because they have high maneuverability, can be adapted to use skis (for winter) and floats (for water landings), and have short take-off and landing requirements. They are manufactured in Canada.
