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.
