Water landing


Recommended Posts

Certainly, it will float--or the parts will.  This one seems to have stalled and landed pretty flat


This one may have hit pretty hard


Just guessing that a combination of the momentum of a heavy engine in back, water-drag on the main gear pitching the airplane down and canard that could catch the water, would all act to flip the airplane.  Interesting to see the spar caps in the second pic and that it floated ashore with the engine still hanging.
