That is pretty impressive. Check out this Twin Otter at around 11,000 lbs as well.......

The DHC-7 is pretty impressive too! When I first started flying it, one of the old hands stopped on ON the numbers at KPVD. It was empty, but that impressed the daylights out of me. DeHavilland Canada mades some serious STOL machines.....

I've got 377 hr. in an STOL aircraft.

That 17 year old kid can't fool me, he's got those wheels filled with helium.
