Still, a great wheels up landing with only a slight ground loop involved.

 

Ricky, you might want to look a little closer. I am pretty sure that is a Grumman Duck. :)  :rolleyes:

With those crazy RATO's it is to predict some hard landings!

RATO? Rocket Assisted Take Off? Gooney Bird Sail Gliding? :o

 

No wonder the poor thing is worn out by the time it needs to land. :lol:

How embarrassing, I was distracted by the Goose next to it. Looks like I need to re-enrole at Kutscha's aircraft recognition school ;)
