Not an Ordinary Alaskan Floatplane Experience

Floatplanes are a popular and important method of transportation in Alaska. In some cases, it’s the only way to get around.

Traveling via floatplanes is safe. How safe you ask? View the video (right) of this floatplane taking off from Lake Hood in Anchorage Alaska. The pilot, his wife, two boys and the pets were uninjured, but they were “shaken pretty good.” Apparently, a gust of wind struck the plane as it was lifting off.
