ShackStream: Shack Air visits Antarctica in the Aerosoft Twin Otter

Join us as we jump into the newly released DHC-6 Twin Otter by Aerosoft and head to the bottom of the earth to explore the frigid lands of Antarctica.

This week, we return to Shack Air and try out some new third-party add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The recently released DHC-6 Twin Otter by Aerosoft is the perfect airplane to take way down South to Antarctica. We’ll spend some time exploring the various ice shelves and frigid waters enhanced by another Aerosoft add-on, the British Rothera and Beyond scenery.

The British Rothera and Beyond scenery even includes penguins.

The DHC-6 Twin Otter is the ultimate go-anywhere aircraft and perfect for the harsh environments of Antarctica. Aerosoft’s release includes a multitude of variants, equipped with floats and skies, and painted in a variety of famous liveries. We’ll be flying in the British Antarctic Survey livery in striking red, which will hopefully be helpful for rescuers in case of a mishap.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Aerosoft DHC-6 Twin Otter stacks up against the previously released CRJ, which we’ve flown a few times before for Shack Air. If time permits, we may also shift over to Nepal and have a look around Mount Everest and one of the world’s most dangerous airports.
