This S-55 was delivered to Los Angeles Airways May 12, 1953 (N416A). Photographed in Vancouver with Estlin Air Services by which time it was converted to turbine power. Sold to Athabaska Airways May 1983, it was damaged June 9, 1999 when hovering 10 - 15 feet over a lake. The engine spooled down for an unknown reason and it settled in the lake and rolled on it's side. Salvaged and sold in the USA as N2299M the following November where it is still on the register.
