Aviation Photo of the Day: Float-Plane Flim-Flam

Today’s Aviation Photo of the Day comes to us from Oshkosh Airventure 2012:


I’m no A&P mechanic, but this looks expensive. I assume maybe the pilot made a hard landing, hit an unseen underwater obstacle, or perhaps was the victim of a surface collision with a boat or another aircraft.

Regardless of the specifics it looks like someone had a bad day. The pilot didn’t look like he wanted to talk about it so I didn’t ask him…hopefully his bird wasn’t too expensive to fix, and he was able to enjoy the rest of the airshow.
