The photograph above was given to me by Shannon Moffat. I believe she lives in Teslin.

She found this photograph among others being thrown away in the dump — I’m not sure if it was in Teslin or Whitehorse.

Shannon gave me quite a few photographs, some of which I hope to use in my Colourful Five Per Cent Scrapbook — Can You Identify? columns.

I really appreciate this. Thank you very much, Shannon.

I don’t know much about the plane pictured above, except the crest on its side says Pacific Air Express.

Where this happened or what the time period is, I don’t know.

One more thing: it has wheels.

What caused this plane to crash nose down? Who knows?

Anybody who has a clue about the origin on the plane, please write Jim Robb: The Colourful Five Per Cent Scrapbook — Can You Identify? c/o the Yukon News, 211 Wood Street, Whitehorse, Yukon,  Y1A 2E4, or e-mail through the News website,
