Boatplanes ARE still alive and well!
Man, that's pretty cool.

That is correct sir.

Outstanding video and flying!!! That is one way to disprove the old saying "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink! Wanna bet??? Drink or swim!
Watch the opening sequence to Steven Spielberg's "Always".
