Just uploaded a segment of the 2003 flight in to Gjoa Haven in my old seaplane, a Cessna T206 amphib.  

One can understand how the Franklin Expedition men would perish - There is very little to live on up here.  The flying was challenging, even for an instrument pilot.  Fog and low ceilings on many days. Watch the landing into Gjoa Haven.  The small building was the airport terminal.

By the way, sadly, the guy I sold the T206 to (N95AK) crashed it shortly after he bought it.   The plane was totaled.  Broke my heart.  She was in sweet shape.  Wheels down on a water landing - big NO NO.
