Hi all,

Last weekend, a seaplane airshow was held at Biscarrosse in the South-West of France.
Here some pics of the three stars of this very good show (Catalina, Albatross and Beriev) and some other.

Great to see some fine images from this event. Looks like the forecast weather didn't happen, were the additional shots taken on the same day?

Or even a freshwater lake show? Last time the question of salt-water landings was asked, the 'Miss Pick Up' custodians indicated that corrosion prevention & the sheer scale of post-flight cleaning precluded such activity. :hide:

The NZ Catalina has the same restriction - they regularly operate from Lake Wanaka and Lake Taupo, but never salt water.

Lets extend the lake at Old Warden!! That's a different Cat, any idea where it's based? That Beriev is something else! Cheers!
