Default "Kmot's" Castaic Float Fly Picture Thread!

It was a very cool event today! Glad I went and had a chance to see so many awesome floatplanes and pilots doing there thing. I got to witness some dedicated arf floatplanes such as the Sport Flyers Aero-Phibian; the Lanier Mariner; the Ace Seamaster; the Falcon Trading Cessna & Beaver planes; and a magnificent KMP Beaver. Also lots of "regular" planes that were converted to floats. Saw a few crashes too, unfortunately.

I took a few pics. 172 to be exact. Plus some video. Here a few:

And lastly, the KMP Beaver. Unfortunately, this beautiful bird augered in when the engine flamed out on its second flight.

Kmot,

Thanks for posting these great pictures. I sure wanted to be there, but had too much work to do this weekend. I've got to start planning my time so I have weekends free

Thanks again,

Did you take the pic of the KMP Beaver on Sunday?? I saw it spin in behind a marsh and thought the worst had happened! I sure hope he was able to repair it!

Kmot, Hey they got the Beaver flying again....They had a few engine out's but took it home in one piece. I think the owner was the Ausie guy, I never got his name, him and his bud's worked on it all day Sat. tell every body left and flew it again on Sun. There were a few different planes come in on Sunday, nice one's too.

I had a great time.

Thanks for the cool pics.

Excellent! And unbelievable, from the way it nosed in and spun. I thought it was a write off. I bet that chap feels like he won the lottery!
