Very high speed, floats almost retracted, and just about to leave the water on take-off from the Hoornsche Hop off Hoorn, on one of several pleasure flights. Photo taken from a bumpy RIB (rigid-inflatable boat). Unfortunately this magnificent aircraft was sold to the Collins Foundation on 11 Oct 2018. It left Dutch waters forever on delivery to the USA on 29 May 2019.
