Floats really well this model.

So aerodynamic that the wind didn't blow it at all.

Gotta love a Suburb that you can just pull up in a car nearby, and chuck it off a cliff and go flying. Pub across the road. Locals to bamboozle. And what looks like great lift (for where it is).

Nothin too fancy, but a place to go scratch that itch

Just watched the JET fly by.....16 of them....and not very good.
Very high in the air...not over the water....all that money on fuel. They could have done a much better job...
Over the water at eye level would have been worth it....

Back to work..

Low and fast is great but careful what you wish for, I was fishing off Black Point about 12 yrs back early one morning when an air force jet came over from the north at not much more than treetop level.

Did not hear or see anything until it was past me then the noise and air blast knocked me flat.

Scared the living crap out of me and was one second off needing an undy change

I had a similar experience back in the 70's when an F1-11 came over at what seemed just above tree top height when I was camping at Sandy Cape, Fraser Island.

Must be something about FI, I had the same experience while casting lures at schools of Tuna on the outside beach (can't think of the name now).

About 200m off the deck and 300m off the beach.
