This is a photo of c/n 520 C-FSAA found it at Helio Facebook page. The visible placard on tailcone is  NAHANI

C/n 520 was replaced by 'Nahanni Air Service' (now North-Wright Airways) with c/n 1401 C-GHDT after 520's accident in '87 since they have nearly identical paint schemes and 1401's isn't a standard 1400 series paint scheme


Helio in background is C-FIYZ c/n 045.

If my History paragraph is correct it was restored and is stored at North-Wright Airways in Norman Wells.

I will open he photo above

It was kind of fun going from 1 pictures to 11 pictures, in all of c/n 520's different configurations in one post.

All were found on Facebook by an English friend of mine that slips around as 'Le Chapeau' he's the one that deserves the credit for many of the photos I post.

Cool to see photos of Helios with Porters, Beavers etc.  Especially love that formation photo with the Twin Otter.
