Nice shot. Makes me wish I was back on vacation in the Bahamas.

For my taste I think I'd have preferred a little slower shutter speed to pick up some blur in the prop and water, assuming you panned.

Good thing he's close to the water with that dead engine.

I flew one in Utah and Arizona for years. God how I miss that!

I just realized that is my old airplane! I put in over 2,000 hours in that plane in Utah with Western Brine Shrimp International!

Bob Hall of Kodiak Airways gave this a try in the 60's when they first came out. I flew in one and liked it. When landing in water, compared to a Goose, Wigeon or float plane it felt like my bottom was below the waterline. Sadly the Lake didn't make it in Kodiak, as it's rough water landing limit was only 6 inch waves or so and while that might happen in a lake environment, in the ocean almost never. Still a sweet aircraft.

Very scary airplanes to be in. Also followers, this is not a "Floatplane", its an Amphibian.ncb
