    • The video was caught by a couple wildlife photographers, and they claim that he was trying to pull out of a stall and failed.garbage
    • Sounds like he didn't go out how he wanted to. RIP.Nairn
    • Yeah.. also Seafair starts at the end of June. Big speculation, but he might have been warming up for a show.garbage
    • (Seafair is a month of madness. Airshows, displays of military power, hydroplane races.)garbage
    • I live right next to one of the lakes and the small seaplanes have been flying lower than normal right over my house. I'm guessing he pushed it too far.garbage
    • Also he was 90, he shouldn't even been allowed to drive a car.garbage
    • The original photo was this orientation and had lots of stars.
