Added a low resolution B/W photo of c/n 1252 as N67697 appears to be when it was with US dept of Interior Alaska Fish Game.
It would be interesting to know which Helios are behind it, looks like four others including the one beside it.

Anyone know How many Helios the Alaska Federal Fish and Game had. I seem to remember that a couple others were loaned to them from Davis-Monthan surplus U-10s.

She's currently sitting on the pavement in Homer, Alaska, missing a pilot's side aileron. It looks as though she hasn't seen much flying time as of late.

Do you fly from the right seat?

Did you take a picture?

Even I who won't join Facebook or Twitter have a camera in my phone.

I did not get a picture, but I always notice when there's a helio around. I do fly from the right seat-- I just don't take off or land.

My early take-offs and landings as a kid were all from the right seat. :)

I was just commenting on the user name.

I had a friend with a C-170 that was wrong handed. He said it was more comfortable for him to fly from the right seat.

It was odd to fly as a passenger in the left seat. I was a new pilot so I suggested he should remove the controls on the left side since it was such a distraction to have the yoke moving around in front of me, he thought it was hilarious.
