Examination of the wreckage showed that the front fuel tanks were empty and no fuel had apparently been used from either of the rear tanks. Since they were able to traverse from Winnipeg to Malcolm Island and return without fuel or stopped for fuel in either Flin Flon or The Pas, we, the floatplane operators, saw very little of them. Dirk Septer added the following:

Have any heard about this accident, and which plane it was? To make a long story short, the crew became lost and finally picked up the Port Hardy Beacon at around mid-night. It was winter and they weren't injured, so they just walked to Ft. They offer our students and graduates meaningful work placement opportunities which helps to further develop their skills and greatly supports them in their career paths. Only one of the original six Marauders made it safely to Fairbanks. The 7th Bomb Wing website confirms my father's information I mentioned above. That aircraft was the one that ended up in Loki..

Dirk Septer provided the text and photo: In two Convair B Peacemakers went down on Canadian soil. Two crewmembers in the rear compartment were killed in the mishap. Blair Rendall visited the wreck in At that time there was 5, rounds of ammo still on it! I crawled in the tail and there were two boxes there on the fuselage, either side, with printing: The ammo was still neatly stacked in the boxes as it was 20 years before.

This was the B in which Brig. Richard Ellsworth and a number of others were killed. The aircraft had very nearly cleared the top of the foot hill overlooking Smith Sound. In honour of Gen. Today, a surprising amount of wreckage is still visible. The crash site remained virtually undisturbed since the U. Air Force salvaged it in A well-groomed trail, about one kilometre from the road, leads to the wreck.

The tail section is intact and perfectly upright. I counted seven engines in the area. There are large sections of wing scattered everywhere. Oddly, there was remarkably little fuselage evident. But maybe local people salvaged some of that. Certainly, most of the armament was. I saw an electrically operated cannon mounted on a workshop wall of a local youth, who had only dragged the gun from the scene years ago.

And locals tell me that there are truckloads of bits and pieces sitting in cellars in all nearby towns. Besides carrying pounds of mm aircraft cannon ammunition, the aircraft had an 11,pound Mk.

IV atomic fission bomb on board, similar to the one dropped on Nagasaki, Japan in August Doug Davidge wrote me in May I had the opportunity to visit the site in and was able to gather a number of photos above. If you wish to use them on your web page please do.

Unfortunately there was not much of it left due to the USAF demolition in the s, but we did document some interesting items. Since my visit, I understand much of the movable pieces have since been taken away by various interested groups or people with the money and means to access the site. It is possible the site could be snow covered all year so maybe the opportunity to see what we encountered will only be on a periodic basis.

Tina Chadwell Weis s wrote me in feb. Chadwell, was one of the survivors of the B crash in near Goose Bay, Labrador, to which you refer to as occurring on Feb 12 of that year. My father had assumed command of the 7th Bomb Wing just weeks before on 3 Jan. The 7th Bomb Wing website confirms my father's information I mentioned above. Photos which I found clearly show, as you mention, that the plane was in 2 pieces. After viewing all the close up photos, it is hard to imagine how anyone survived the impact.

I hope this email reaches someone who can explain further how people get to these crash sites. It had never occurred to me that these planes still were at their crash scenes.

Lee Cormie who is also on your website, looking for info on the Ft. Ross DC-3 was the pilot of the helicopter, of which I had just assisted on an engine change and we flew out there on a test flight Lew Noble remembered how a rumor told a different version of the cause of the crash: I know almost nothing about flying or GCA landings but here is what was said: The planes were in line making their approach.

Somehow the 2 plane had gotten into the lead or 1 position. The 1 plane was following GCA instructions which were based on the position of the lead plane 2. Is this true or even possible? I don't know, but this is the explanation that went around the base. Roger Soupart shared this photo no source or name of photographer on his Facebook wall in May Michael Prophet propliner enthusiast noted this wreckage on the website www.

Accident details on Aviation-Safety. Phil Schaefer sent me this photo in June , he wrote: I've got a couple of aerial photos of the B wreck near Wood River Butts, about 30 miles south of Fairbanks if you're interested. According to the great guys at the Pioneer Park museum it crashed shortly after WWII while trying to recreate a 4 engine failure that caused another plane to crash I believe that is the wreck near the Charlie River.

Not much left of the wreckage now, a wildfire a couple years ago did a lot of damage. Tim Berg replied with the following information: No one was killed in it. There were some broken bones The second one, that went out to duplicate the first one, is about 4 miles south of the one you have pictures of and it had no survivors.

It is much harder to see. I do have some pictures of it. Fire never got to either one of them. Leon Crane was the co-pilot of the B that crashed near Charlie River while doing prop tests. The story is about his experience as a survivor of the flight. What spurred me to write to you was that Tim Berg quoted on your website from an article from the Air Force Flying Safety Magazine publ.

Perhaps the article was referring to natural fires over the years; however, Lt. Far above me, I made out the flaming wreck of the plane. It was at least five miles away, a distant, black-red glow with black smoke spreading and twisting above it.

I looked into the valley below. There was a small stream threading its way down there, with spruce trees growing on both sides. I had landed in a rather barren area.

The only vegetation about me was a few scrub brush pushing through the snow. I was well above time line. Not a sound of anything. I yelled again and again. No answer, not so much as an echo in that rarified atmosphere. I must be up pretty high. Now I began to realize that my hands were almost blue with cold: I had left my mittens in the plane. I picked up my chute and wrapped it into a small bundle and set out to climb toward the wreck.

We had always been told that if we crashed, the plane was far easier to pick up from the air than a man walking on foot. Under the snow the mountainside was a mass of glacial boulders, rounded like cobblestones, ranging in size from pebbles to boulders too heavy to lift. It was next to impossible to walk. I tried struggling on, but after about half an hour I had made less than a few hundred yards, and I was exhausted.

I cleared away the snow from a large boulder, sat down on it and as calmly and methodically as I could, took stock of the situation. That might mean as much as miles from Big Delta. We were then immediately over Big Delta. They had no way of knowing that we had gone far out of our way to find that gap in the overcast.

I knew the chance of any emergency equipment, such as food, guns, sleeping bags, being left in the plane was pretty slight. Later that night, he says: The B still burned. He makes no mention of any of the other crewmembers ever making it home. Anyway, as I said, it was a good read, and I found the pictures of the crash site on your website to be interesting, and thought you might find Lt.

If you can find the book, he details the entire flight through his return to civilization. When I last visited the sight the plane was in much better condition. I suspect that this airplane has sadly been the victim of high scrap prices for aluminum a couple of years ago, but I may be wrong. Although somewhat remote, the sight is accessible by vehicle. I have a short history of the plane, although I can in no way guarantee its accuracy since the information was given to me by a friend, who had talked to somebody, who had lived in the area for many years.

The plane was used by the United States Air Force the markings are still on the plane. It crashed into a small lake, beside the railway tracks, in the 's. I was told there were no fatalities. The plane was pulled up on shore, where the engines and other parts were salvaged.

I think that the fact that the railway was used up until about 15 years ago kept the plane in a fairly unvandalised state. Unfortunately this is no longer the case". Parmerter , authority on the Beech 18 subject and author of the 'bible' on this subject "Beech The reason I ask is that the orange paint seems to be in more places than I've seen it on other Cs for high-viz.

Hopefully some more information will come to light. A post on the AvCanada forum provided the following response from 'imarai': Best of luck on your findings. Another Beech C wreck, also in Ontario, as yet uncertain about the identity and crash background- Vince Yonemitsu wrote me on Oct. Its location is north of Thunder Bay, crashed sometime before as there is a date someone scratched into it.

Near a lake, maybe a forced landing on the ice? It is not acessible by vehicle or boat due to rapids. It is about 1km off Mckinley road. As far as I can tell it has been there since before ; it is a Beechcraft model 18 or C It is in the middle of the wilderness on the bank of a lake with the wheels still on it not crashed.

Wings and motors have been removed and many souvenirs have been stripped off it. There is part of a number still on one of the tail fins CF-Z Karl Hayes wrote me in January with a nice challenge I read this book over the Christmas and it was a great read.

He mentions two crashes which may be of interest for your 'Abandoned Aircraft of the North' department. I carried out some more research, and they are as follows. In his book he mentions that NM was on a flight from Northern Alaska back to base at Fairbanks when it had engine failure.

It force landed at Yukon Flats about miles north of Fairbanks and was just left there. It landed in the bush and none of the crew were injured. It was just too remote a crash site to retrieve the aircraft. Presumably the C is still lying there out in the bush? This is what I found on www. An Interior Airways C, NM was returning to Fairbanks from Northern Alaska when engine trouble forced it down in remote regions about miles north of Fairbanks in the vicinity of a small outpost called Beaver.

The crew walked away but the wreck has since been forgotten about. Google Earth searches have turned up nothing as yet but if anyone out there has any further information please drop me a line via the home-page.

Report on Aviation Safety Network. Dietmar Eckell has brilliant photos of NM, amongst many other wrecks. Report from Thomas Hird, pilot flying in this crash With no notice the left engine barked once or twice and quit! Remember - no electrical power equals no feathering pump to action. The resultant aerodynamic behavior was something akin to a falling brick The C needed all the power two functioning engine can produce to climb.

Now I am flying a C with the gear down and one wind milling propeller. While plummeting towards the earth David Tuttle wrote me in Nov. It lies on a straight line from Beaver to the old village strip at Venetie. Thought I'd send you a couple of pictures I snapped one day as I overflew it.

He mentions two crashes which may be of interest for your 'Abandoned Aircraft of the North' department The lake was frozen at the time and the C went through the ice!

There is a photograph of it in the book, sitting in the middle of the water after the ice had melted. He doesn't give a registration, but a bit of research shows this to be N, a C of Interior.

Again, the aircraft was just left there, so may well still be there..? Fortunately Francis Blake came to the rescue in may ! He contacted me with a splendid story and this unique photo of the unfortunate Curtiss C N!

Before it went to Interior Airways it was acquired by Flying Tigers and reg'd N from the military. I have not been able to find an occurrence report, perhaps this incident is buried in some paper files somewhere. I think the nickname found use after the incident as Google maps still goes by the native name 'Nullack Lake'.

While Google Earth found the name Nullaq Lake it failed to zoom in on the spot, I marked it and named it again. The images do not show a plane.

In the book 'Triumph over Turbulence' see my books page I came across this photo: So this states it hasn't been salvaged On the AvCanada another interesting item appeared: Those with aircraft preservation at heart will understand the drama when an attempt to recover B "Kee Bird" went awfully wrong in the summer of The plane has frozen into the mud and snow, and it takes maximum power to break the wheels free.

The nose wheel can't be controlled, and at slow speeds, Darryl has to adjust the engine power to steer the plane. Finally, it is moving in a wide circle, out onto the lake, on its way toward the end of the runway. The plane is bounced and shaken by the frozen snowdrifts. Suddenly, smoke can be seen pouring from the windows in the cockpit.

The auxiliary power unit, a stand-by generator, was thrown from its mounting in the rear fuselage, and caught fire. See HERE how it sits now The failed 'Kee Bird' recovery was discussed on AvCanada forum. More details here on www. Alas, my understanding of French is poor and thus the text of no help. Darcy Lafontaine sent me this image in Jan.

I thought I'd pass you some pictures I took of the wreckage. They were dated Dec. The front page news of those three days was about a U. There was in-flight fire that the crew couldn't extinguish, so the auto-pilot was set and they all bailed out just southeast of Watkins Glen. The plane was left flying a northerly course. They lost radar contact with it about miles north of Bagotville. If this is the same plane, it flew more than statute miles with no one in it.

The articles in the Post Standard are quite extensive. This website mentions the crash site at Prince Patrick Island, of which Wikipedia has this to say: What tragedy happened there that date? But Craig Fuller, webmaster of www. And it was 10Oct, where it was finally destroyed. This is what Craig Fuller contributed Looks like the 10 OCT accident is the one where it was actually written off and the accident you have photos of.

A damage of 4 in the D column means write-off damage for this time period. Charles P O'Dale wrote: Unfortunately, it was not an excellent landing as the aircraft was not re-usable I webmaster also found this on C The aircraft was allocated to Task Force 1. My Dad was on both those jobs with Denny, and Dad flew both those aircraft out after bush repairs were completed. I later flew both those aircraft on commercial operations. I was a kid at the time with those guys and their colleagues being my heroes!

Here is the info that Wikipedia has: This is some of the Wikipedia info: Neither the aircraft nor the 31 passengers and six crew have been found. It was sold to Canadian Pacific Airlines in An item on Facebook Feb. The website quoted the photographer as Derrick Midwinter who displayed the images on Flickr. The above image clearly shows the identity: I found a thorough description of this abandoned plane wreck on Aad van der Voet's website: That summer we took accident investigators to a tragic accident when 2 Canso water bombers collided not that far from Fort Smith near a lake; possibly it was near Pilot Lake, just north along a river and another lake Have you ever heard of that accident or have any photos sent to you referring to it?

This was mid-summer I have photos of other crashed types, but not of those that crashed in NWT; it still interests me to view the north and the aircraft that did not make it! Around , when I was in Red Deer, a man named Gordon Magnuson, whom I worked for as a load master on a DC-3 , was killed in a crash of his spray plane in the summer season; somewhere in in central Alberta. Also, when we flew with Northward, we often passed an aircraft that crashed into the rocky out crops cliffs within 20 miles north of Norman Wells.

I share these points and persons named above in case you have come across any of them over the years and can share any news that would mean a lot to me. I am now 64 and only a few more years to work in Aviation except to instruct PPL's because I hold a instructors rating still.

I often work in Africa now in humanitarian programs; we see so many crash sites of Russian planes, they are scattered all over the region of Kenya, Sudan, DRC and Uganda. To email me, click on the image and write the correct adress as given below replace -AT- by the symbol. Sorry for the inconvenience, but this is because spam has increasingly become a problem. Ted Stull is mentioned too.

There was mining industry nearby. They all walked to the store and then sent a teamster with a team of horses and a sleigh to pick up the baggage and freight. So what happened to Ted Stull? Ted Stull, 52, a well-known figure in Canadian commercial aviation, died here Saturday after a brief illness. No weather reports, no beam flying, no radio, no automatic pilots. They have ten planes now, carrying from four to 12 passengers on regular schedules, but most of their business is freight.

They carry everything, from Bibles to tractors. A while ago, a sourdough got hold of Ted Stull and said he had a hunch about a place up along the Sachlgo River. The house and the car, the fellows all around, the bush country with its miners and trappers , Hunyaks, Canucks, breeds, the airplanes coming down on lakes lost from the world.

An average of one plane tying up at the dock every six minutes, 16 hours a day, all summer long. Busiest seaplane port in the world! That sure is great country for a man to make a living. Alexandre Avrane of aerotransport. At above link there is also a much larger image to be seen. Michael Prophet spotted this August image of N on a website dedicated to an adventurous and challenging boattrip, in the Arctic North, on www.

We came to the Aleuts from Japan, are presently still in Alaska and will start for Canada in a few weeks. And this is far from the only wrecked aircraft up here. Mike Criss likes hiking. Hiking in remote areas. He lives in Wasilla,Alaska and on his hikes he comes across quite a few crashsites. Here is one he would like to know more about DC-3 at Reindeer Lake, July Here is Jack Lamb's book, the story of flying in the great white north: I was told it was hauling lumber at night and lost an engine.

As you can tell its been there for sometime due to the growth around it Note that Lambair operated four Bristol Freighters in all, as follows, but the Lambair website gives no further details:. Unidentified Canso, with sketchy data: Aviation Safety Network has the following: Arctic Wings apparently was a sub-company of Spartan Airways, details welcomed. The Avro York had a somewhat unlucky career in Canada's Arctic North; 3 Yorks crashed in 6 weeks in the spring of '55, 7 in 18 months, 2 on the same day 13 Sept Photos by Jack Crawshaw.

Mike Charters wrote me in Dec. Note the battery box hole, the big gap behind it where the fuel tank goes that has been obviously removed and the tubular truss structure spar. The coordinates N 49 Lorne Brett sent me these images in Sep. I have this close aerial photo of it sitting in the water, as described! I took it in July while I was part of a geological field crew. We were tent camped at nearby Driftwood; our field transportation was a Bell Jet Ranger.

Our cargo carriers were ex-C's and ex-C's. It landed on ice in June and broke through. Interior Airways intended to rescue it, but never did. But current sat pics do not show it so guess it has been removed and scrapped. The original Indian name for the lake was 'Nullaq Lake', but you can easily see how it was corrupted to No Luck!

I don't know if it became No Luck before or after the plane incident..? Summer was my only time on the Slope. First at Sagwon, then Umiat, finally Driftwood. In May I received following contribution to the website from Marguerite Randall: Gordon Olafson wrote the definitive answer to this: Felix Stadler wrote me in april I visited it in March and took some pictures. The Arctic North northern parts of Canada and Alaska is a cruel environment for men and machine; for planes it is no different.

The weather creates all sorts of hazards, the terrain offers its own variety of opportunities for disaster. Men are prone to make mistakes and machines are bound to fail at some point. Here are some of the results. I hope we can establish the identities and the locations of these planes, help will be welcomed.

Jason Pineau published this beautiful photo on his Flickr account link and added following information: Parked on the side of a hill near Tofino, BC.

Identity of this plane is: If you intend to hike up there, this may be helpful: Photo taken by 'Scudrunner'. They lived all their lives flying as bush pilots in Northern Manitoba and the Canadian Arctic. This book highlights some of their adventures while operating scheduled and charter flights.

The famous Miss Piggy C46 plane crash site: Kelly Walker was at the scene, shortly after the Curtiss C Commando crashed I was there, the day it happened This photo was taken shortly after the crash.

The wreckage is still there Feb. I've never seen any other pictures taken at the time of the crash. The people you see walking around the wreckage in the picture, are Ministry of Transport personnel; they wouldn't let us go any closer than where we parked.

Martin Bluethner had written the following and Elsa Bluethner forwarded this to me They were doing a fuel run out of Thompson Manitoba when a short time after take off the starboard engine caught fire. They shut the engine off, feathered the prop and turned around. They were still loosing altitude, so the co-pilot went back to dump some fuel out the back door Just as Dad was thinking that it was time to switch fuel tanks on the port engine the fuel gauge was not working the co-pilot came running back into the cockpit screaming that there was a fire in the belly of the plane.

The co-pilot went down into the belly with a fire extinguisher and flashlight looking for a fire. But there was none: Shortly after all of that excitement, the port engine died of fuel starvation Dad tried to switch tanks and restart it but to no avail.

They feathered the props on that engine and prepared themselves for impact. The co-pilot strapped himself in again and covered his face with pillows. Dad said that it all went in slow motion from there. He said that the tops of the trees were very soft. He passed out on impact. When he came to, he was dangling from his seatbelt, a dozen feet above the ground, where the co-pilot was yelling at him, urging them to get away before the whole thing exploded!

He undid his belt and tumbled to the ground. They hobbled off through swamp, stopping once for Dad to wipe the jet fuel out of his backside, where a chopper came to meet them. The chopper did not actually land, it just hovered a foot above the swampy ground while they got on Dad was impressed by this. The co-pilot came out without a scratch. Dad walked away with a few less teeth and a gash on his lower leg.

They were very lucky. Pictures of the crash show a large tree between the pilot and co-pilot's seats. The jet fuel must have all gone straight out the front, avoiding the hot engines I do remember a reading a write up about it in some aviation journal, but I don't think I ever got a copy of it.

I did do a quick search and these web sites seem to correspond to the crash: The photo on the left below makes it clear that the cockpit has been salvaged. The photo on the right illustrates how the wreckage is easily overlooked these days, trees encroaching the wreck site. Whatever feathers your prop, I guess" Seems like a veritable Curtiss Commando scrapyard up there in Manitoba..!

Information from the website polarpilots. Bad weather forced it to miss refuelling in Pangnirtung or Broughton Island now Qikiqtarjuaq. It ran out of fuel and landed on the tundra about 45 nm north east of Iqaluit. The passengers included many of the original Inuit group that worked to develop the idea of Nunavut, which became a territory on April 1, Search and Rescue in Nunavut volunteers use the wreck as a target for spotter training.

The winter photo upper left was taken by Kenn Borek pilot Marcel Siegenthaler during a training run in January The engines have been removed and much of the useful material stripped. And it now serves as a shelter for hunters, as you can see in this summer photo below taken by Patrick Nagle. Location by Google Maps The sign reads: Ron sent me an update on 17June09, writing: Last summer I travelled to this place!

Here's the story sorry, it is in French but you can look at the pics www. I found another one, a Liberator B Ken Lubinski sent me these photos in Sep. The one pic shows the old mine cabin. Fellow on the left was the cook Henry and on the right my helper Rick. I cannot recall their last names.

We spent the month of Feb at that camp. It was very cold At night water would freeze in the cabin. All the packing between the logs had fallen out, so the wind would blow right between the logs.

Every morning we would have little snow drifts on our sleeping bags! I was doing exploration drilling at the old uranium mine for a company out of BC. I believe the company name was Noranda. Could be wrong on that one.

Of all the years of working the Arctic, Baffin Island included, I have never witnessed Northern Lights as intense as they were there! For two nights the sky was literally alive from one horizon to the other.

The colors were so vibrant, and the movement of the lights was scarry! They seemed like they were just above the tree tops. Andreas sent me this link www.

Note that Lambair operated four Bristol Freighters in all, as follows, but the Lambair website gives no further details: We studied the window configuration there are different.

CF-NJF has a round window in the starboard cargo hatch, but covered. CF-NJB has a round window or observer bobble in stb. CF-UAW has a square window in the stb. Cargo hatch And on Dan's photo there seems to be no window in the stb. It crashed and was destroyed during water pick-up at Sioux Lookout, Ontario on 12Jul See the website www. If the photographer makes himself known I would be happy to include proper credit to the photographer here.

Rob Tracz sent me photos of N in better days, click here. Andreas Morgner sent me the link to Google Maps , to further facilitate travellers Thomas Bouwens from Alaska sent me this image and the question: James Lumley disagreed dec. The statement says the aircraft crashed on take-off at the Venetie airport; but that is quite a ways away from Tobin Creek! The museum referred to is Hill Aerospace Museum, but that's a fake tailnumber. The only doubt I could share is whether this is a likely location for a plane that got into trouble at take off from Venetie!

The runway at Venetie is on a 90 degrees angle to Tobin Creek as the crow flies.. The mystery untangled by contributions sent Dec. Aad van der Voet: It is true though that N did not take off from Venetie! It was taking off from the airstrip next to where it is lying now, but it never got off the ground. Here is what my database says about this mishap: The aircraft attempted a downwind take-off from the snow-covered Tobin Creek Mine airstrip.

Nosewheel steering was ineffective due to the snow and the rudder was not responsive due to the tailwind. This caused the pilot to lose directional control, and the aircraft ran off the runway, collided with a snowbank and nosed-over into a gully. It was severely damaged and the wreck was abandoned.

A text on the engine said: They usually refer to a "nearby" airport instead. This has caused numerous incorrect accident locations to be reported on websites, and also in some books, particularly if it happened in remote locations such as Alaska.

Tobin Creek is an example of that problem. And Marc Hookerman wrote: The C46 is N Downwind takeoffs or landings at Tobin Creek were often SOP as the airstrip is uni-directional - one way in, opposite way out. You had to carry a lot of power coming in there to deal with the wind-shear and subsequent grade of the airstrip.

Located in a tight, ascending valley within the Chandalar region of the Brooks Range, Tobin Creek was - without a doubt - one of the nastiest places the fuel haulers flew to. Altitude, short, steep grade, dog legged, and the surface was a tire shredder. With peaks on three sides of the airstrip, the wind-shear was awful. During the few years leading up the closure of the mine, the only operators that would go in there were Brooks Fuel and occasionally Everts.

The mine has been closed since or so - the runway is now completely washed out. NTSB dockets no longer allow 'nearby' facility selection during data entry when dealing with an airstrip without a location identifier - unless it happens off airport. That was only a problem prior to the s.

Craig Bass wrote me in June Following I received from Mac McCrimmon, at this time without photos, but interesting all the same: This DC-3 was one of many airplanes that brought guests to what was then called Arctic Lodge, although it is a long way from the real Arctic. I forget the name of the person who owned the lodge but it was a well run organization that catered to groups of sportsmen, as opposed to many fly in fishing camps that catered to individuals and their friends.

These airplanes came up from Minnesota with groups and returned with another on a weekly basis. Since they were able to traverse from Winnipeg to Malcolm Island and return without fuel or stopped for fuel in either Flin Flon or The Pas, we, the floatplane operators, saw very little of them.

If you go to Google Earth and key in Malcolm Island , you will see the airport. Now, if you go west and north from the island about 7 or 8 miles in a small bay between two islands, you will see a settlement. That is Arctic Lodge. It is inhabited only in the summer. Where I got involved in the incident, other than hearing about it, was when one of our company pilots Calm Air Ltd.

We just left the airplane there for the winter. Later on that spring, we flew in to Malcolm Island with a Twin Otter to salvage our Beech 18, only to find that Porky had beat us to it and took all the radios and instruments out of the airplane! We then simply haywired the tail section up, chopped the roof off the cockpit and taxied the airplane across the ice to Kinasao or Coop Point. We had a problem getting the airplane off the ice so we taxied around to a bay near the airstrip where there was ice right of shore, but about yards or meters from shore, the airplane broke through the ice damaging the propellers I have some pictures of the wrecked Beech 18, but they are on slides and I am attempting to put them on something digital but with poor luck When I was on the Island, I never got to the wreckage because it was on the south end and we always worked off the north end of the airstrip.

I have some pilots tell me, on a clear calm day you can see the Beech 18 in the water The water up here is clear to over feet! Here is a link to a map that will show you where the malcolm island runway is to Kinoosao: He remembers it well because the crew flew back to Lynn Lake every night and had the parts they took off the plane that day Gord wrote me in May This is alongside the abandoned rail line between Sioux Lookout, Ontario and Upsala Looks like it may have been pulled out of the lake?

We all took some pics and your welcome to use them. I also have the gps coordinates on my gps, here they are: We were guessing it's a Beech It was in the trees close to the rail line and at that time was much more intact than shown in the recent photos. It was a Beech 18 that had had engine problems and was put into the trees sometime earlier.

I flew for Superior Airways and we made a lot of flights over this area when going between our base in Fort William, now Thunder Bay and our Sioux Lookout base. I suspect that at some point someone has done salvage work to retrieve engines etc.

Scudrunner wrote me in July I have a cropped Google Earth picture that I would like you to put up to confirm it's existance: While NM has been adressed in the item above, this next one is about C N The above shot was taken during Operation "Boxtop" in and below was taken during "Boxtop" in "Finally after two years of work they are ready for the flight back to Thule. Have I missed them?

These are the ones I have traced so far. More digging to be done! It is written in French but I figured there might be some good info for you. There's also a picture of the tail ": All nine crew perished and are buried at the northern approach of the Alert airport.
