Accident: Lovelock, AK. 13-Jun-2000. The pilot was taking off from a narrow river on a flight to Kvichak River with six passengers on board. He stated that he initially kept the water rudders extended during the downriver takeoff for steerage. He indicated that when the airplane came up on step, it swerved left toward the shallow water, and he did not have time to avoid striking the riverbank. He stated that the swerve was likely caused by a wind gust from the left, or dragging the left float on the shallow river bottom. Five of the six passengers aboard provided written statements to the NTSB. Three of the five reported the wind conditions were calm at the time of the accident. The remaining two passengers did not mention the wind conditions. All five of the passengers noted the airplane veered to the left, towards the riverbank, when the pilot diverted his attention and lowered his head to retract the water rudders. No injuries sustained but aircraft suffered substantial damage. NTSB report number ANC00LA069

Total time:  at Jun-2000 – 16,642 hours.
