    The PREVIOUS photo of the 800 pound PA-11 was shot when the wind was only 15-18 knots. That plane was a pure delight to fly.
    She would leave the water at 38 miles per hour. (34 knots) and climb at 45-50 mph (43 knots)

    With a C-185 you can start your slide at one end of Beluga lake and be at about 500- 600 feet at the other end while climbing out.
    In The Dragon-Lady you would be at 800-900 feet if you played your cards right.

    Looks like glassy water to me. What lake was that photo taken on?

    I was referring to the wind in the previous photo. The glassy water pic might have been on Rocky Lake. Not sure... I just like to add pics when making a response...
