Loch Insh Splash-In 2019, Flying in the Scottish Highlands


I've been on a holiday to Scotland from the States with my wife and saw a posting online about a float plane fly-in at a lake about 40 minutes outside of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. We decided to go spectate. We were warmly welcomed by the Scottish pilots and had an enjoyable visit.

I've been to half a dozen float plane events in Arizona and New Mexico and I don't think we would have dared to fly in these conditions. My hat is off to their piloting skills.

It's not considered chilly until the water has turned to solid ice!

Didn't seem to put a damper on the fun! Here's a wee video showing the flying skill of these Scotsmen.

Thanks Al. I also posted over at ModelFlying thinking I might have better luck finding the guys who were flying at Loch Insh that day.
