  • Anyone know the deal with the C182 that flipped in Lake Hood Yesterday?

    The one article I saw had a rather far away photo with some guys big head right in the middle.
    Was it an amphib with gear down or some other type of Boo-Boo???

    The ADN picture is from the same angle and appears to show bow damage to the right float. At least it looks like damage.

    I read the wind was 12G26 at the time. Stuff happens. None of us is immune.

      You sure got that right...

      And you are right this photo sure makes it look like something is different about that bow section.
      High winds can blow stuff into the water and also make it impossible to see said stuff...
      I am sure happy he walked away OK...

        All we can do is speculate. I do know that many accidents can be attributed to the "snowball effect"...One mistake added to another and another and on and on may lead to a catasrophic event.

          I only brought it up because I had not yet seen the photos that showed it had straight floats and not amphibs and before I saw the weather report which showed 26 knots gusts.
          Sometimes somebody who is in the area will jump in and report what they saw.
          Still glad he walked (or swam) out of this one. I was up on a mountain lake last Saturday and came very close to being upside down as well.
