What an awesome photo!

In the fall of 1976, I went out to General Dynamics in Fort Worth for an interview with my future boss. After the interview was over, he took me out to the flight line and showed me the first full scale development F-16 (FSD-1) which had rolled out (under it's own power, BTW) from final assembly just a few days before. I had seen that roll out on the local news the day it took place and now I actually got to walk up and touch it! It had this same livery which was also used on the flight test article. I started my employment just a couple of weeks later and retired in the summer of 2013 after the delivery of just over 4500 aircraft. To quote Clint Eastwood in "Firefox"... "what a machine"!!

Not to belittle the photog, but you can't take a bad picture of a DeHav on floats!

Sorry, that does not look like Wisconsin. Somewhere west of the Rockies most likely. Definitely west of the Missouri River.

The owner said he came back from dinner to check on the plane and as he approached, this is what he saw. This pic.

Private registration as appears in image is NZ1014. Aussie airfield location fits well with that!

Es la mejor escuadrilla de acrobacia. Tuve la fortuna de haberla visto en varias oportunidades. La primera vez lo hacian con el F-9F Tiger. Fuè en Pensacola año 1960. Lo mas arriesgado los vi en el F4 Phanton el en NAS El Toro, California.

Leg of the trip from YYR-UAK.

With modern navigational aids both, in the plane and ground based, I'm sure the trip will be a bit less stressful than EKG described in Fate is the Hunter.

There is just something about a float plane on a beautiful lake that sets you back and makes you smile.
