Incident at CHURCHILL MB (CYYQ)

Summary

2003-09-04: UPDATE TSB reported that the amphibious-float equipped Cessna TU206G, N95AK, was cruising at 1,000 feet AGL with fuel feeding from the left tank when the engine stopped. The pilot switched fuel tanks and turned on the electric fuel boost pump but was unable to restart the engine. The pilot made a forced landing in a small pond, and the aircraft ran up on the shore of the pond at about 20 knots. The occupants were uninjured, and the aircraft reportedly was undamaged. Following the forced landing the left fuel tank cap was found to be not fully secured, and fuel stains aft of the cap indicated fuel had vented from the tank in flight. The left tank was empty and the right tank contained about a one-hour supply of fuel.
2003-09-03: Churchill FSS received a call from the pilot of N95AK, a Cessna 206 on amphibian floats, via satelite phone at 1734Z advising the aircraft had run out of fuel. He had conducted an emergency landing on the tundra about 60 miles south of Churchill. There was no damage and there were no injuries to the 2 occupants, but the pilot also reported that there were polar bears around. RCC was advised and a charter helicopter was sent from Churchill to the site at 1824Z. Both occupants were transported to Churchill
