|Dropping off the cameraman. Note the how the nosewheel retracts - this is the single most
common question we get when displaying the aircraft on land. We now carry a 5x7 of this very

float. These were installed specifically for towing operations at the Oshkosh Seabase and
avoids the need to tow the aircraft with the prop bridle (which yields poor directional control).
