Last Tuesday, my friend, Jeff, invited me along for a ride on a 1947 Grumman Goose amphibious plane. He had an open seat and offered it to me. They are phasing the Goose out in August, so I couldn't pass up such a unique experience! It was pretty awesome - complete with a water take-off and water landing! :)
I had some videos, but our internet won't allow me to upload them - to slow. But here are some pictures from our trip!!! Enjoy!
