Very strange ... Saturday morning, and the Harbour Air crews came across this bizarre sight. They were apparently doing some testing with water barrels to mimic passengers and something went a bit off-kilter, to say the least!

According to CKWX radio, a tether line broke, and one of the pontoons was punctured - I guess this explains why the plane ended nose-up. A slight aft CG would make all the water pool at the back of the pontoon and tip up very quickly.
