A Florida man trying to take his dad on a flight for Father’s Day hit a wake in the water that soaked the flight plan.
On Sunday at 11:05 a.m. the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office and Nassau County Fire Rescue responded to reports of a plane crash in the Nassau Sound.
When NCSO’s Marine Unit arrived they discovered it was an amphibious aircraft. These types of planes can land or take off on the water.
The pilot told NCSO he was trying to take his father out for a Father’s Day flight but was having issues taking off.
The pilot accidentally hit a wake and damaged one of the plane’s floats, according to NCSO.
Both the pilot and his father were thankfully uninjured and the plane was taken in for repairs.
