No.2 Pigs will Fly and Penguins too

It is always hands on, you are always monitoring. There is very little time to have the autopilot switched on. Troyd Bowles is a pilot with FIGAS: The Falkland Islands Government Air Service. Flying to rugged and rural destinations across the archipelago, he serves as a vital link to the Islander community transporting everything from people to wild animals. The worst thing he finds are piglets—their smell can be hard enough for the pilot he says, let alone anyone else on the plane.

This is the third of seven videos in our series that capture the uniqueness, the quirkiness and the complexity surrounding the Falkland Islands, while ultimately providing more intimate insight into the islands as a whole. See '51º South: A Prologue' here :
