Dear fellow Bird Watchers
The Red and Yellow Canadair is a well respected and welcome visitor to the Port in the Summer.Where it hibernates in the winter is not Known.
As most of you know it has floats on each wing and a hull is it a hybrid ???.
Lets ask Pollensafan the Font of all Knowledge for his opinion

All this talk of the new season, just had to take a walk along the prom on Google street view, they have updated it up to November last year, so pretty much as it must look now, great fun!!

I think the wing mounts are stabiliser floats. I like the idea of having stabilisers especially after a visit to Bonys.

Cheers,

" A Font " Well that's better that similar sounding things I have been called over the years.

As for that flying thing, it's no good asking me.
I come from an era where you put on a leather flying helmet and goggles.
Then you stood in front of the plane and pulled the propeller to get it started. That was followed by the pilot shouting " chocks away" and that was just to get on a passenger jet to go on holiday.

That's Ryanair for you.
