    This is just a wild, wild, wild GUESS.................I don't think it is on either Floats or Wheels..............My guess is that it is on..........It's Back.

    Must have been on floats. Pretty hard to flip a 206 over on wheels.

    Watched a wheeled 206 flip over on the ramp, 50kt tail wind & the pilot pulled the elevators up! Wheelbarrowed over the nose onto it's back...it can be done.
