For as long as man has been able to fly, he has been interested in taking off and landing from the water. The surfaces of lakes and bays offered smooth, long, and perfectly level areas to serve as liquid runways, and could make for a somewhat softer landing in the event of a crash. This colorful volume tells the story of the seaplane, from the earliest floats to the monsters of World War II, to the brave little bushplanes that rule remote areas of Canada, South America, and Australia.
