Well, sort of found a picture of c/n 2506, N8868E it took some looking at the blurred registry number to figure out which Helio it was because it was upside down and reversed, check it out.

James Isabell of Teller, AK must have been visiting Anchorage, interesting there is no FAA record of c/n 2506 being placed on floats.

Anyone have an actual photo of N8868E

caption was "Helio Reflection in Ice at Lake Hood, AK"
