The Big Fish

Hey Mom, Look at what someone caught, I wonder if they were using a large spinner for bait.  Lets see, float plane, one wheel up, one wheel down, engine quits, get a LARGE fishing pole (well a 175 Ton Mobile Crane actually) to fish the plane out of the water.  The pilot was shaken and tumbled a bit but otherwise unhurt.  This was not the first plane the crane company has fished out of the water, and the airplane service group had the plane apart and on a trailer in a few hours.  They looked like they had practiced the drill several times.
