Default The 2nd Puerto Pollensa Spash-in 2013.

This has just been posted on FB by Fundació Aeronàutica Mallorquina.

Dear friends,
Here I want to give you the scoop of the next meeting of seaplanes, publicizing this second event poster
Today we have firmed 14 hydros, which surely will delight lovers of aviation.
If last year we fall short this year, we have surpassed our expectations, since our limit was in 10 seaplanes.
Inform you that in tomorrow's meeting submit the scheme of collaborators, so all those fans, who want to help may have a unique opportunity to be able to be in the front row, and so photography enthusiasts will have their space in this event. (Translated by Bing)

Default Sea plane convention in Puerto Pollensa

Had a great time wandering round the Military Zone looking at all the sea planes this morning.
Lots more than last year in September and they had the strolling Xeremiers musicians there as well to add to the great atmosphere.

Had a brief chat with one of the organizers and he told me that there won't be a sea plane gathering next year (2014) but that there would be another one in May 2015.
