    Default Clackamas County float plane wreck

    Saw an article on a different sight with a very interesting photo of an upside down float plane. Then found the sheriff's website for the rest of the story. The pilot is not the owner of the plane.

    Here is the news release from the sheriffs department.

    In the upper left corner go to photo 3. I wonder at what point he remembered his wheels were still down? Or since it was not his plane did he even think about it?

    Probably about time he was going inverted.

    On a positive note, the float bottoms look to be in great shape.
