floatplane in the snow

floatplane in the snow

I thought they were in distress and decided to descend to verify that they are fine. After about 10 minutes determined they were fine. We made one last orbit and to see they were making out under the left wing and much more. We knew they didn't need our helps and want to let them get back to more horizontal exercise. :-)

Great catch..... Always wondered if floats would work well in deeper snow.
Judging by the footprints I'd say it might have been a "comfort" stop 8-)
