Narrative:
The aircraft executed a mechanical related precautionary landing adjacent to Harborview Park in Everett, Washington. The helicopter was not damaged and the two occupants onboard were not injured during the incident. According to a contemporary newspaper report

"Helicopter Makes Emergency Landing On Everett Beach

A small helicopter with two people on board had to make an emergency landing on the beach in front of Harborview Park Sunday afternoon. The pilot radioed the control tower at Paine Field and advised he had to make a soft landing on the beach about three miles north of the field.

The pilot said he had a drive train issue and first landed on the beach on the water side of the tracks. He had his passenger get out and was able to fly the copter over to the land side of the tracks but didnít believe he could make Paine Field.

Both people were okay and the pilot was calling for a truck and flatbed out of Seattle to tow the helicopter off the Burlington Northern property."
