"Early morning anglers (were) treated to the spectacle of four T6 Harvard Aircraft from The Flying Lions Aerobatic Team water skiing across the Klipdrift Dam near Johannesburg South Africa. Lead by Scully Levin, with wingmen Arnie Meneghelli, Stewart Lithgow and Ellis Levin, this renowned air show display team rehearse(d) a sequence for the newly launched 'Aviation Action' television program on Supersport."

"Arnie Meneghelli from Academy Brushware, owner of the aircraft, had this to say: 'What we did today I believe is a world first. It illustrates that South African air show pilots are amongst the best in the world.' This unusual act, approved by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and supported by Castrol Aviation, was meticulously planned and took place under the watchful eye of divers and paramedics that were on site."

It may be the first time it was done with intent.
But accidently water skiing with aircraft
unfortunately nothing new.
there is a documented case of a PB4Y-2
(late US Navy version of a B-24 with single fin)
water skiing for over a mile before finally setteling
in and sinking.

You're right there, but you look at the weather conditions here. The water was 'glass' = no wind (normal for early morning)..etc.
This was perfectly planned and co-ordinated, no doubt.
I've contacted our local guy to elaborate on this. Hopefully soon he'll give the whole 'gen'.

Not much to add http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Scully (the leader) did say though that the trick was to stand on the brakes to keep the wheels stationary http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Also DO NOT try this with tricycle gear aircraft http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also this is nothing new! If you do a google for Super Cub and skiing you will find tons of pics of them doing it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
