beach, NY

Caption: A Talon Air (callsign “Talon Flight”) Cessna Caravan 208 Amphibious, tail number N539AK, tootling around on the Lawn Guyland (Long Island) Sound.

Love the Caravan Amphibious, and it’s one of my faves in the flightsim!

Ah, here ya go, perfect example...



[fullsize]

you can see the "F-GLZI" on the rear-side, just in front of the rearmost exit-door, *and* see the "ZI" fleet number on the nosegear door in front.

(Lookit the fullsize pic on the link I provided, or rightclick on this pic and view, to see the details.)

Naw, never been, at least not physically. *Quite* often in the flightsim, though. :D

I figured if you had the fullsize pic vs the shrunken version (800px across), you might be able to make out the number.

It's just curiosity on my part, as I've tracked down even unmarked(!!) planes by just a fragment of the fleet number, or by a partial reg# in deep shadow on the underside of a wing, etc.

In general, AFR A340s follow the pattern of F-GL@@, so if you knew what to look for, you'd see what the "@@" letters were. :D

(I *think* F-GNII is the one'n'only exception, the rest would be something like F-GLZP, etc.)

Hey Clabo: Enjoyed your comments on my "Air France" airliner. Have you been to SXM? Your eyesight is better than mine as I can't read any of the registration number. One of my favorite activities in S.M. is going to Maho Beach and taking pixs of the big ones landing. I used to own a Cessna C-140A, would have loved to fly that into SXM. Regards, Charlie

Thanks!

It was a weird day, overcast for sure, but not foggy, just a thick haze. Pix of barges were "crisp" as far as focus, but distortion left straight edges looking wavy, as if looking across a hot grille.

Anyway, it was really *really* hard to get a good focus on this critter. Not the angle I wanted, but it still came out okay.

Thanks!

I got the titles for "Gear Up For Water Landing" I and II from the annunciator in the Caravan (in the flightsim, at least). :D

It's a reminder to have the gear retracted when landing on water (unless you want to flip over!), and to have them extended when landing on a regular runway (unless you want to scrape to a stop!).

After not seeing one in a looooooong time, it was nice to have this little coincidence!

Cool looking plane! I rode on an amphibious plane once over the Florida Keys and it was an amazing experience. It was smaller than this one though, and I believe they said it was used in WWII.

Oh, and yeah, it was a dreary rainy day. That's why everything's, like, *gray*. :D
