Imperial Airways Short S.17, 1935


  1. Taxiing inside a Seaplane is a bone shaking thrill. I used to commute between St. Croix and St.Thomas, American Virgin Islands in the mid 1980s.
    You taxi, and taxi and finally the bird sucks free from the water and slowly climbs up to altitude. buying a ticket is only the beginning, you are weighed, your luggage is weighed and heaven help you if you are over the limit. Ditch the weight or you don't go. One of my best memories.
