Default Port of Miami live camera - Aircraft Down



Looks like a boat flipped over........ Port of Miami Webcam - A Cruise Ship and Scenic Web Cam in Miami Florida

Can't tell if its a Catamaran or a flipped over sea plane

I've got a photo but for whatever reason it won't load

Hard to believe they are still screwing around with it. Three attempted lifts so far

Default I don't think they work this way

Pretty sure seaplanes are supposed to land on the floats when landing on water.

That appears to be a Tropic Ocean Airways plane. Wife is due to fly them to Bimini in August.

Huh, I don't know anything about seaplanes but in some reading it does seem that landing on water with the gear down is a recipe for disaster. Wonder if that is what happened, or if that was an electrical malfunction after the fact?

Pretty impressed that the plane looked like it was in one piece when they dragged it out of the water.

Well, yeah! When the rear wheels hit the water, the extra drag caused it to nose down and then the front gear hit the water and, well, the rest is as you see in the pic.

Stayed in a hotel last August overlooking the base they landed at. Saw them coming in over and over. Just across from the Cruise ship terminal.
