This photo is the exact replica of the tanker I crashed back on July 12 1982 on Jackson Lake near Sioux Lookout. It has the same engines and can carry 1200 gal. of water. My tanker was tanker 9 which is also on this web site. I survived this crash and saved my captain who could not swim and subsequently picked by Bill Wiedenhoff our bird dog officer in a turbo beaver.
