While a 'groundhogs'
description of a "Buzz Job" may otherwise be a perfectly legal
overflight, media reports from Green Bay suggest that someone may
have flown a little low over an assemblage of tall ships in
Local Law Enforcement reports suggest that two seaplanes (who,
of course, operate off water and occasionally have the need to be
over water at altitudes below those normally associated with
non-seaplane ops) "buzzed" the tall ships between July 31st and
Ground observations by Sheriff's Deputies and Green Bay PD (in
patrol boats) claimed that the aircraft, 'flew below the
height of the masts of the ships,' with deputy claiming
that he thought 'one of the planes was about to crash into the
Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge.'
While such observations have the statistical rep for being
notoriously unreliable (even from LE officials); identifying data,
including N numbers, were reportedly taken and submitted to the
FAA, 'for further investigation.'
ANN hopes that these accusations are not true and are little
more than the standard over-reaction from folks who may not always
understand what they see when it comes to General Aviation...
however, this report and all others like it, certainly give the
industry additional reason to make sure that not only are our
operations legal, but scrupulously so...
