I've watched that video a couple times now, what would that pilot be thinking?

An empty amphibian Caravan takes at least a mile to get off the water. The plane barely got on step before it hit the bridge. If this is the caliber of pilot operating today's aircraft we're all in trouble.

Remember, this wasn't a US or Canadian event. I can't speak specifically to that country, but the standards are often much lower in many countries elsewhere.

Very true, but we have become much more of a World Environment, Economy as well as all the other things both Good and Bad and these type things do not bode well for our community. (Sorry Glenn, now that I do not have a seaplane - You Guy's Community) Same things with Murder Weapons, those of us that own guns, cook (may use a pressure cooker), drive a heavy vehicle from time to time, fly big pieces of metal filled with fuel, all end up suffering for the few.

Not even close to a mile to get it off the water, even loaded. I know of one that operates all the time out of the "slew" on the Kustatan that is MUCH shorter than that. Granted, its a bit upgraded and the 1100+ SHP makes a big difference.

Oh crap- does that mean I have to register my Pressure cooker now? How about my carrot peeler- you could conceivably scratch someone with it.

Well, remember that the deadliest attach on Mainland U.S. taking more lives than the sneak attack on Pear Harbor, was mostly achieved with box cutters.
