What Wires?

March 31, 2010

Seaplane flying is great fun but, like in all aviation, safety is the first consideration.  This short video shows two examples of hard-to-see powerlines over water. There are probably hundreds of these potential floatplane-grabbers around the U.S., and many are not marked, nor are they on aviation charts. Be careful out there.

Our special thanks to SPA member, Water Flying contributor, and Alaska bush pilot, Mike Kincaid, for sharing this great clip.

And, a few more old favorites with good safety lessons for everyone . . .
