President John F. Kennedy

50 Year Anniversary of President Kennedy’s “We Choose to go to the moon” Speech…

“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.” Caption: President Kennedy speaks before a crowd of 35,000 people at Rice University.

Pilatus Twin Porter PC-8D

• Another development of the PC-6 Porter was the twin-engined PC-8D Twin Porter with two Lycoming IO-540 engines of 290 hp each. This proof-of-concept aircraft used many components of the PC-6. The prototype first flew on November 28th 1967 as HB-KOA. With no orders in the books the project was stopped in February 1969 and the aircraft was scrapped.

HB-KOA was the prototype and only example of the PC-8 Twin Porter built. The author was lucky enough to see the prototype in Buochs/Stans on 27MAR68 between test flights.
