    Default C172 on floats Video.

    Chris Palmer from Angle of Attack put this video together from his first couple of hours of flying with me.
    I obviously need to scrub my floats before we go out again. And beaching has scrapped off the white paint on the bottoms of the floats.

    Watch on a higher def setting.

    Nice, I'm not a pilot but hope to be some day. I love taking my girls down to lake hood and watching all the plane activity. I drive around and look at all the planes that have a for sale signs and dream that some day I might be a buyer.

    Great video! The Beluga Lake scum line, at least it gives you a quick reference to see if you have a hole in your float

    It seems worse this year compared to years in the past. Maybe because I did not fly as much this year.
