The Caribou, and the C-123 were cargo planes that I always wanted if I ever got rich. I wanted to convert one into a flying RV.

Worked for DeHavilland Aircraft in the 60's.  Caribou, Buffalo and Twin Otter were the big sellers at the time and had amazing STOL capabilities.  It's a testament to their engineering and build quality that so many are still in use.  STill see the single engined Otter and Beaver all over the place up here.
