A good Yukon News article from this last week about Andy Williams, and a few of his great Helio exploits at very high altitude in the Kluane National Park and Reserve, -St. Elias Mtns. area!

What a good looking plane.  I really like the colors and the scheme.  Does anyone know what model of ski is currently being used on that airplane?

added a low quality black and white preview photo found at e-bay and opened above.

It does show what is probably 1223's first paint scheme.

It should be opened as the first photo in the queue above.

Anyone know if these are the Seamaster amphib floats?

Added a link to video  click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSDwQbJOBNs

You might want to look at this video as well not only is it interesting, but there is a Helio at 1:37 that I am trying to identify. This is the first unidentified Helio registry that I've found in a long time, it appears to be C-GVKG.

C-GVKG is c/n 519 isn't it?  Colors in the video seem to match the colors on the pictures of 519.
