This may not be a seaplane, but judging by the boat shaped body it looks as though it could land on water. Having been to the Southport Airshow a couple of times before I was very keen to go this year. However the traffic was so bad that we ended up diverting to Formby and had a nice walk on the beach. Not only was it overcast but it was also raining. In the rain I didn’t fancy the idea of pointing my camera to the sky all day! Whilst walking along the beach this is what I was able to capture as the plane headed a few miles north to Southport.
