Not sure how this will get recovered, that is a lot of weight under poor ice.

These kind of recoveries are often done from shore. They'll have a diver attach a cable and pull it to shore. I understand the bottom there is all sand and that would help. And if lucky, the truck is upright.

The loon sh../silt/sand is gonna make it worse and especially the fact that the wing and nose blades are down.

If the hoe operator had of put the stabilzer legs down and used the hoe to pull it .. it may have come back out before breaking through.

Great series of photos! There must have been enormous strain on that cable!
The crew did an amazing job-hope it runs again!

The TLA recently redesigned and updated their website, and the photos of the truck recovery are no longer available at the link above.
