Video: Alaska floatplane's close call with a whale
We've all heard of deer and even an occasional moose crossing the path of a landing airplane, but it's not often a whale gets in the way. That's exactly what happened recently in Angoo, Alaska, when the quick reaction of a floatplane pilot avoided what could have been a calamitous outcome for airplane and the whale. The pilot of the de Havilland Beaver might not even have realized the whale was there if not for a spray of water from the water-going mammal just as it breached the surface of the water.
