    Where did that report originate? The engine quit doing steep turns while trying to figure out where to land... The plane landed on the tundra and went down a side hill towards the river. This was not a controlled landing! The gear was removed by the tundra. Probably unported the fuel feed doing numerous low level steep turns, while trying to figure out where to land.

    The airplane didnít land on a landing strip! So the FAA says he lost control while landing? How about he crashed onto the tundra after his engine quit and then caught again as he was crashing...He was shedding parts while scaring up the tundra.

    I had friends standing by river saw it. Said he was really doing steep turns and low. Their quote "a real hotdog". Flew over my camp on way to the crash site. Long way to have to sling load out.

    Maybe they only asked him over the phone.
    I have seen more than a few planes piled up and the FAA knows nothing about it. Or they think the tide got the plane while parked on a beach.
