It may be interesting, It may not be. Last year I took a flight in my C-150M over Big Basin, the DesPlains River, Kankakee river & confluence of Illinois river. Three rivers to the locals. And took video.

Right in the beginning of the video you get an aerial view of the marina. My boats there but too hard to pick out even in HD.

10 minutes of river flying and then a longer trip home and then a landing.
Landing at 30:30

Here is the raw footage:

Didn't see it but I think I know who you are talking about. Was the bottom of the plane like a boat and the engine on top facing backwards?

Too cool... That's something I would love to be able to do that's seems just out of reach. Couple weeks ago one of the "tuner" kids at work asked me what my new car would be, I said a Icon A5 son. :)

I'll ask him tomorrow if it was this old crazy pilot over at Clow pilots breakfast tomorrow. I've flown that plane. Traded hours in my Cessna when his was in the shop and got to do some touch and goes as well as full stops. Very cool plane bc the noise is behind you and you have an unrestricted view
