Seaplane pilot keeps shiny side up
Landings with faulty gear are common and almost always uneventful but a Canadian seaplane pilot found himself in an unusual predicament. The gear on the amphib floats on Paul Armstrong's Cessna 206 only partly deployed so he was caught between a wet and a hard place. Landing on water would have flipped the aircraft because some of the wheels were down. Landing on concrete would have had the same result because some of the wheels were still tucked in the floats.
