There was a young guy me with a set of hip waders & fishing rod ready to spring into action. But with 2 great pilots Dale & Ron it was not necessary to use any rescue tools.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I am extremely good at flying off of water, no boat needed, nor floats. Mind you I can walk on water.
Of course I only fly of water in the dead of winter and it has to be considerably below zero, for an extended period of time.
Looks good Dale glad you guys could get out.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

3 ice cubes in a glass of Rum. I bet we could all take a lesson from our dear Dan-O.

Because if we were all standing on the beach. Dan-O would have to join in. He is that kind of guy.

A real pile of fun to be around. And, a very good friend (of mine).





Lougheed Post Harvest Inter-Provincial Fun-Fly tomorrow Oct 19th. Their first annual.
