Narrative:
The Bell 206 Longranger was being ferried from Yellowknife to Cape Dorset. The pilot had initially planned to cross the Foxe Channel from Coral Harbor, but turned back because of poor ice conditions. The pilot decided to head north around Foxe Basin and follow the southern shore of Baffin Island. The pilot's last stop was at Hall Beach, where he had taken on fuel. The helicopter was located by Fisherman on the frozen ice surface of Foxe Basin, approximately 26 miles North of Igloolik. The aircraft was destroyed. The pilot was fatally injured.
