Float plane takeoff

Some, but not all, sea planes come with wheels in their floats so that they can work on the water or land. But have you ever thought about how a plane without wheels, water or runway would take off? The answer is incredibly cool to watch.

The plane is on a little cart at the back of a truck and speeds down the runway. When it hits take off speed the amazing part happens. The float plane goes from sitting on its little platform to airborne in just a split second.

While the video is quite short, you're definitely going to want to watch it a few times just to see how the process works. Scroll down to check it out.
