First Seaplane (Hydroaeroplane) Flight 1911!Waring Hills Jan 26, 2011
Today one hundred years ago, Glenn Curtiss made the first successful seaplane or as known then, hydroaeroplane, at North Island, San Diego, California. Navy Lieutenant T. G. Ellyson was a witness and helped Curtiss prepare for the first seaplane flight.
Below are a takeoff and landing of a replica Curtiss A-1 built for the Curtiss Centennial this year, watch and imagine the wonder of yesteryear!
…and here is what happens if you make a BAD seaplane landing, well I guess any landing you can swim away or paddle away from is a sort of good landing!
