Goose Launch

Here's a spectacular picture of a goose taking off from the water. It's quite a sight watching them running across the surface of the water and flapping like crazy until they finally get airborne.

And HERE's another spectacular take-off by a Goose, this time one from Grumman.

I can't imagine why these guys didn't pull the power and start over when it first started to get out of shape.

Classic ariplane, too bad.

Throttles got stuck maybe?

My dad crew chiefed on a Grumman Albatross back when he was in the CA ANG...long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Great Vid, great old plane, sorry to see it aground, somebody who cares will fix it. Wish I knew the whole story, what the entire conversation was, where it was, etc.
