What's going on here?

A visitor from Singapore posted Sat January 28, 2012:
FLARM is usually needed for big meetings and competitions. in everyday flying your FLARM is your pair of eyes

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Emergency for a glider... hmm let me think... what about air-to-air collision??? And if another airplane doesn't have FLARM, the installation won't notify the other aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 2, 2010:
I wonder if this glider could be considered airworthy once dried off?

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 29, 2010:
An amphib glider? Guess not.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Engine failure ;) Nice shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 21, 2010:
What now? Up 'scope?

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 17, 2010:
Pretty hard to grasp what kind of emergency a "glider" would face?

All he needs now is a Pocket Knife...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 26, 2009:
Great shot. But the pilot disembarked normally with the open canopy. The canopy was broken when touching the water. After the pilot disembarked, the canopy was closed again to prevent water entering. I was there. Regards.

A visitor from - posted Wed December 2, 2009:
Wow! A flying submarine!

A visitor from Norway posted Sat July 4, 2009:
Looks like the front-seat pilot tried to get the canopy off the emergency way. Maybe it didn't work properly due to low speed/standstill in the water. Scary situation.

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue December 16, 2008:
I think the most apropriate words for this is: ooops!

A visitor from - posted Mon August 11, 2008:
Did`nt some one tell him it was`nt a seaplane

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sun May 18, 2008:
Awesome! :) but why did the pilot smash the cockpit when there is an emergency cockpit-jettison..which in the picture clearly hasn't been used. You can also see that the glider is equipped with FLARM (kind of a TCAS for small avs.)

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 4, 2007:
Excellent clarity of a very unusual landing. Should have used pontoons.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 20, 2007:
I think that redefines the term "Landing Out" lol

A visitor from France posted Mon November 19, 2007:
Nice glider ASK21

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 25, 2007:
What a shame, I wonder if she can ever return to the deep blue?

A visitor from Spain posted Mon September 17, 2007:
Perhaps the pilot did misunderstood the meaning of Sail... plane :D

A visitor from Australia posted Sun September 9, 2007:
The clarity of the fuselage under the water the camera person made properuse of the light available

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat September 8, 2007:
I like this photograph very much because it features a very nice plane in unusual circumstances (to say the least). I like the story behind it and the fact that the people in the plane survived the incident. Also, the photo itself appeals to me: I like the lines and the colors.
