Seaplane in Shetland
Enthusiasts will know whether the Cessna FR172F, above, should be termed a seaplane or a floatplane. However, one landed in Lerwick Harbour, Shetland, and then flew on to Tingwall Airport and the Out Skerries. It was the first time that many had seen this variety of aircraft. Seaplanes were commonplace in this area was when Catalinas were based at Sullum Voe during the Second World War. A full account with images is available in Shetland News.
