Remarks: On Sept., 8th, 2006 and while attempting to gather water on the sea near the Ría de Pontevedra (Spain), the pilot felt a strong impact that almost made the aircraft overturn. As a result, the engine blades struck the water and loosened up, damaging the lower engine plates and breaking one of the bars holding the floats.
Remarks: Ex N8512Q. Manufactured in 2003. This was brought to the Canaries for fighting wild forest fires. Seen here resting at TFS sun. The engine mounted is PWC PT6A-67AG. Thank's Fernando Gonzalez for the info.
