    Default Here's what you get when you follow Peer's suggestions...

    Jan mentioned in his comment on the "Phantom Formation" thread that landing aircraft on water can be challenging, so I said why not try the easier thing, i.e. take off? I used the ORBX Freeware CAG8 Pender Harbour Seaplane Base, and pulled out a rarely used Cessna Birddog floatplane out of my hangar.

    Rolled off the jetty leaving the passengers behind, not much of a bush pilot here.

    I thought with seaplanes there is no runway to run out of... or so I thought...

    The birddog did not achieve the ramp effect that Sea Harries get at take off from British carriers. So I ended up nose heavy.

    The end of a very short flight. On the plus side I left the crash without getting my feet wet.

    Great Airmanship? eh?

    Best wishes.

    Khalid - Is Jan your flight instructor or a movie producer acquaintance?

    Oh well, you had a good landing, I assume you walked away from it?

    Thank you all, well wishers, and sympathisers. Every cloud has a sliver lining: I am glad and proud that I qualified for the von Peerhoven academy.

    //To confess I did try to evade the accident, jammed my feet hard on the brake pedals but nothing happened, I did try the handbrake to no avail either. An accident investigation will blame brake failure for this crash for sure, so its definitely not pilot error.

    Geez, I've been here long enough, I could have warned you that listening to him was a bad idea.

    KEVIN!!!! Go wash your mouth! Oh, and Khalid: you forgot rule number one: After any accident: immediately start blaming someone else! Very important!
