CTD, may I clarify your clarification :P


I believe that is what the accident report stated "hooked to the belly".


Altough for myself and several others who were on scene from a point shortly after splashdown to the delivery of the parts and peices back to the barn this could never be determined.


Some questions went unanswered,


where did the right hand skid tube disappear too?


where did the sling gear (20 to 30 feet of nylon rope) disappear to?


there was nothing attached to the hook the following morning, (never had a opportunity the night before to have a look).


the people in the camp became very quite about "who did what" what was hooked where.


the pilot could not remember if it got attached to the hook or the skid.


In all fairness to the pilot, he sustained a pretty good rap to the melon and remembered very little about anything immediately prior to the upset, and the locals on scene were scared sh!tless and protecting themselves. Although they were credited with saving his life as they cut him from his restraints from the inverted submerged aircraft.
