Part of Hartwell search and rescue map

This item consists of a composite map made from an assembled series of aeronautical maps and multiple overlays used by Canadian Armed Forces Search and Rescue in the search for pilot Marten Hartwell and his passengers. The maps were glued and taped together, marked with a search grid, and have two plastic overlays annotated with search areas. The maps depict the geographic area from Spence Bay southwest to Great Slave Lake and show as far west as Great Bear Lake near the actual crash site. This map was used during the coroner's inquest into the deaths of the passengers nurse Judy Hill and medivac patients David Pisurayak Kootook and Neemee Nulliayok, and is indicated as "Hartwell Inquest Exhibit" on the verso. It also shows the path of the Hercules aircraft that located the emergency beacon 31 days after the crash which occurred on November 8, 1972.

The maps and overlays have been disassembled for storage. The base paper map is irregularly sized, 244 x 152 maximum dimensions. It consists of:
0001A: Portion of Cambridge Bay aeronautical map
0001B: Norman Wells N.W. 64/128 aeronautical map
0001C: Adhered Coppermine, Bathurst Inlet, Camsell River and [unknown south of Bathurst Inlet] fragment aeronautical maps
0001D: Rae N.W. 62/120 adhered to Artillery Lake aeronautical map
0001E: Partial Providence N.W. aeronautical map
0001F: Partial Hearne Channel adhered to Wood Buffalo aeronautical map
0001G: Partial Fort Smith Nonacho aeronautical map

The two plastic overlays are also irregularly sized, but both align to geographic features and the annotated grid of the base map. The larger green/black overlay is the initial search grid, and the smaller orange overlay is the secondary search.

The smaller top overlay is rectangular, measuring approximately 112 x 86 cm and is marked with orange grease pencil noting a more northern search grid.

The larger middle overlay is irregularly shaped, with maximum dimensions 165 x 109 cm. It is in several sections, marked primarily in black and green grease pencil. The grid extends between Cambridge Bay and Yellowknife. The section with the more westerly crash site, as well as the flight path of the Hercules aircraft is indicated in orange.
