Here is a preview photo of c/n 1269 as N42122.

It appears as if was recently released from the military.

Does anyone Have a recent photo? It is still on the  current N registry.

I stopped in Bremerton in '97 on a Alaska to Nebraska trip, to visit a woman Friend that lived there, In fact I spent a couple hours there while waiting for her to show up. I can't remember seeing a Helio there or anyone mentioning there being an airplane like mine on the field.

A friend sent me this, and I opened a photo above.

There is a poor quality photo of Mr Mangels' float equipped Helio on his facebook page. He is a member of the Washington Seaplane Pilots Association. Another snap is captioned "Home on Kitsap Lake", so I imagine that of the addresses that Google shows for that name, his is likely to be 278 Kitsap Lake Road Northwest, Bremerton, WA 98312.

Personally I am not on any social media that I know of, and don't intend to be.

Maybe one of our members that is into social media would like to contact Dale Mangels and try for a better picture.

or Maybe one of you guys that lives near Bremerton, WA can take a cell phone picture? In fact if you have a seaplane instead of flying somewhere for the 100 dollar hamburger, How about flying over to "Kitsap Lake" and take a picture.
