HEY! This will be fun. Let's fly real close to those boaters and thrill them with our incredible piloting skills. I'll follow you.

If you've ever been able to see one of those up close, there's no question why it kept on flying.

Those things are built ridiculously strong.

Old plane manufacturer. After WW2 it was bought up by General Dynamics, who sold it back to the Canadian government years later - probably around the time they really started focusing on land warfare, I'd guess. Canada owned it for about ten years, and then sold it.

Ended up being Bombardier, essentially.

Looks like that bald guy distracted the pilot, giving him a face full of banana hammock.
