I do recognize my knot on the rope on the 800.  So it is mine.  Well, it was.  Probably taken at Royal Woolf lodge.  It was C-FXOH

And the two other were part of the fleet of Royal Wolf Lodge AK.  Maybe 25 years ago ?  I can find the real date.

Here is a picture of a Helio accident at lake Hood, Anchorage AK.

Anyone know which Helio had this accident?

At first I thought it  might be c/n 517 which was flipped over in a windstorm
but being a B/W photo and the photo caption Helio accident Lake Hood, probably not.

Appears to be an H391b due to a two blade prop. Narrows the field some!

It does and I looked through the accident reports for H-391 and H-395As
and skimmed through the 2500 accidents, none appear to be an on float
accident at Lake Hood.
I suspect though it may have been an accident at the time but a lot of
accidents were changed to incidents, then dropped from accident list
and if this was a taxi incident probably dropped.
From what I can remember of how things looked 30 yrs ago this appears to
be looking south with the a/c in the taxi channel.

Anyone else with an opinion.

Here is a Flicker photo of a Helio in the background taken at Resolute bay North West Territories 1963-64 any of you Canadian guys know which Helio with this distinctive paint scheme was in that area at that time.

And a second Helio at Pucallpa, Peru probably Jaars.

Here is another unidentified Helio

It is a 1200 series U-10D with Army 5th Special Forces, at a lake near Simmons Army Airfield in the spring '74.

It is probably a USAF Helio loaned to the Army or participating in a joint excersize because the Army never had any U-10Ds.

I think most if not all of the USAF Helios on  floats were with the Air National Gaurd,

That north !!!  Resolute.  I am surprised.  If anyone could tell stories about Helio around that area, it would be
Laserich, Rene
#1 Ogark Road, Box 73
Cambridge Bay   X0E 0C0
Canada

He is the owner of my late Helio 800 C-FXOH

And the one that would have pilot it in those years would be his father
