  1. Superbly carried out landing. No need for foam afterwards, maybe spraying some foam on the centreline prior to landing would be more appropriate.

  2. My father flew pby Catalinas ww11 I have old photos of him and his crew fixing engines covered in grease with spanners having put it down on water
