Swimming the Rock River with a Grumman Widgeon Flyover

I just re-discovered the Amphicar community forums, I think I fell away through the combination of increased family and job demands coupled with the change in forum software. Time flies.

Anyhow, I was fortunate enough to be able to stow away on Eric Mattlins Amphicar about 9 years ago during one of Dave the Wave's Swim meets. About half way through the trip we were treated to multiple flyovers and a touch and go from a beautiful Grumman Widgeon. Thought I'd post it up, I'm sure some of you will recall the event and maybe have better footage. :) It was a great day.
