2002. Remarks by Tony
Jarvis: "This aircraft was enroute to Yellowknife in
the Northwest Territories, Canada, and would go missing in 1964 with Chuck
McAvoy and his two passengers somewhere west of Bathurst Inlet. They
would name three lakes in the area in memory of these men and the
SAR people still list them as missing. In the picture
the aircraft is overall Grey with Red speed-lines and cowling."
08/07/2003. From the Edmonton Sun newspaper: "Wreckage believed to
be the remains of McAvoy's plane was found Sunday (August 3, 2003)
near the border between the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, about
364 mls (585 km) north of Yellowknife.... McAvoy planned to land near
Yellowknife, but the ice wasn't stable. Instead, he headed for Itchen
Lake, east of Great Bear Lake. It was the last anyone heard from him."
08/05/2009. Remarks by Chuck Tolley: "
Indeed CF-MAK was located and the bodies McAvoy and his two passengers were recovered.
The wreckage was recovered and is now with Joe MacBryan of Buffalo Airways in Yellowknife."
