Ice buildup on a Jet Ranger helicopter that became stranded (by ice buildup) on the summit of Mount Mageik near the Valley of 10,000 Smokes in early September 2013. Sam Egli, the owner of the helicopter, later flew up with another helicopter and a mechanic who thawed this helicopter. Egli eventually flew this helicopter back to his base in King Salmon.
