Or the aftermath of. He was bringing one of our guys into the logging camp we were working at. Hit the water at a pretty steep nose down and broke the front float struts off, our guy was sitting in the right seat, both him and the pilot had those strap bruises across their chests the only injuries. It was floating good with the engine under water and the wings on the surface, we were towing it to the beach with a skiff with a five horse outboard, when the insurance adjuster got there he decided that was too slow. Skycrane was working for us so he figured that would be the ticket to move it. The Crane got it about a hundred feet in the air and translated, that little bit of airspeed got the Otter to fly a bit, when it quit flying it hit the end of the line hard and the leash between the rigging straps and the longline broke and this is the result. It's neat to be able to stand back eyes covered knowing my fingerprints were no where on this.
Lousy photo I know it's scanned from a print, just thought some of you might like to see.
