Remarks by Tracy B. Perry: "This photograph of Chuck McAvoy's 1938 Fairchild model 82D was taken while moored at the Float Base tie-up in the Old Town at Yellowknife.
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.
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 pilot's seat with his arms on the cowling."
