Remarks by Tracy
B. Perry: "This photograph of Chuck McAvoys 1938
Fairchild model 82D (CF-MAK) was taken on July 12, 1962, while moored
at the Float Base tie-up in the Old Town at Yellowknife, Northwest
Territories. Thus, this image of the aircraft on pontoons
probably shows exactly how it appeared on the day it went down on
June 9, 1964 about 100 miles (161 km) southwest of Bathurst Inlet near Lupin
Lake in what is now the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border. In this
photo the aircraft is overall grey with forest-green lateral speed
lines bearing the inscription "McAVOY AIR SERVICE LTD.".
The wing and rudder tips are red. Although difficult to see in this
photograph, the original 35mm transparency, when projected, clearly
shows Chuck sitting in the pilots seat with his arms on the cowling." View also photo 27 and 4855.
