He will come to us from Great Britain and he was a British Airways pilot John Russel with his wife, Liz.
John after 30 years of work on aircraft such as Boeing 757, Boeing 767 and Trident decided to continue his passion for aviation, this time on seaplanes. He piloted various types from Piper Cuba to Grumman Albatros. Among his journeys he remembers a journey from Florida through the Caribbean islands to Granada and back, which he took with Grumman Albatros, flying for variety mainly at 500 feet (about 180 m) and a trip around the United States.
The plane also has a quite interesting story. Produced in 1982 and originally used by Porsche as a demonstration aircraft for its time-propelled airplane engine designed by Porsche. Then sold in private hands to buy it in 2006. Only that it was an ordinary land plane and John wanted a seaplane, so he wanted to convert it. He fought a long battle to get the right swimmers and even longer to certify them. But in the end it succeeded. And thanks to this, he is now visiting the whole world with this plane. It will be the first time in Masuria.
