Photographer's Remark

Six weeks after this photo was taken, the pilot of this aircraft lost control during step-taxi training on Seven Mile Lake due south of Big Lake, AK. This lovely little Beaver collided with the lake shore and some trees, and was substantially damaged. The aircraft was repaired but soon thereafter transferred to the US Department of the Interior. In June 2008 it was reregistered as N720. Note the "Civil Air Patrol - USAF Auxiliary" logo on the door.
