Default Sea Plane/Flying Boats

I'm not sure we ever decided what to call them, so i've titled the thread with both.

Is it my imagination, or did i spot a new one today?

Sounded noisier, flew faster and seemed to be painted slightly differently, a bit more yellow i think.

Anyone got any proper info?

There's an article here about them getting new sea planes in the future, but I wonder If you have seen one of the Bombardier 415 that they have in their fleet?

It is the same type of plane, however when I was at the open day a couple of weeks ago my friend who knows a lot about the planes said the one that was on display had not been here before.

Spain's Air Safety Agency has given permission for civilian seaplanes to land in Pollensa Bay. The president of the Majorca Aeronautical Foundation, Miquel Buades, says that a report received from the agency on Monday states that a maximum of fifty seaplanes per annum will be able to land. Agreement has also been obtained from the air force base.

For Buades, this was "great news". With the permission, Majorca will be pioneering in having the first port in Spain where civilian seaplanes can land. The foundation has proposed that Puerto Pollensa be a centre for pilot training, so this can now happen. ...

...

The report stresses that seaplanes are not for commercial flights. There had been a proposal for a seaplane service to link Pollensa with Formentera.

Seaplane use in Pollensa Bay is currently confined to firefighting planes and to the Splash-In event, for which special permission has been required.

The amount of times you're out there I would have thought you could have got one of your man servants to do it my noble Lord.

A quick touch up with the old bristles and job done
