Nice link. I knew that there are still seaplanes in use today in many areas.



There are still a lot of C-47/DC-3s in the air too.

Quote from Article: ""We have to be proficient in braking," ... "These motorcycles are equipped with anti-lock braking systems. The wheels don't lock up. They stay on the ground.""



I must be a braking guru, 'cause I have no problem keeping my wheels on the ground, even without the benefit of ABS
