Yesterday, I had to go to a place called Klemtu. It's a First Nation reservation on the mainland. To get there, I had to drive 3.5 hrs north to a place called Port Hardy, and catch a Saab 340 to a more obscure place called Bella Bella (a place so beautiful, they had to say it twice??). Once there, I sufferred a trip on a 1930's amphibian:

This morning, there was a bit of strife. All of Pacific Coastal's seaplanes were fogged-in at Port Hardy, and I couldn't be brought from Klemtu in time to catch the Saab back to Port Hardy, so I had to charter an alternative - in this case it was a Cessna 185:

Note the method of removing the seaplane from the launch-ramp (at Coal Harbour). Unique in my experience!!

Fantastic pics Brews, very cool.

Closest I came was a quick hop in a Twin Otter island hopping in the Maldives, water landings can be quite exciting (is that the right description Shocked ) BTW the fork lift wouldn't have worked with the Otter :-/

Thx for sharing.

I've never thought about whether a "Landing" is the right term to apply to a seaplane. I think it is.

The pilot operated the forklift, by the way!

Great stuff Brews! That looks fantastic! I would dearly love to take a trip on a seaplane one day...
