Directly across from the end of the Homer Spit is an area called Mckeon Flats. The Wosnesenski River heads inland from the south western side of the flat area and goes up into the mountains. There are large power cables that go over the river at an angle. They are poorly marked and I am pretty sure this pilot ( N-57511 a 1973 Bellanca 7GCBC ) whacked those power cables.
My bride and I were paddling the Cub down the lake in Homer so we could pull it out for a cylinder swap right when this happened. The weather was HORRIBLE
