Member Dr. Henry Chapeski lands in a field in Saskatchewan, Canada. He is in stable condition, passenger unhurt. Quick thinking on Dr. Chapeski's part saved ALOT of critical time.

Future Seabee Pilot Jason Nucciarone
with Member Mike Lush's beautiful Seabee

Jeff Nucciarone

Jeff says, "Hi Steve. The event (Hammondsport) has grown much smaller this year and the was only a single Seabee.
Three Lakes showed up and maybe ten or twelve planes in total.

Since we couldn't pose with the Marty B here's a photo of Jason with the next best thing. 
He did manage to snag a long ride in a Lake Renegade.

Hopefully we get to cross paths again some day. Maybe the kid will have learned to become a pilot by then!
Take care, Jeff"
(I remember taking Jason for rides in the Ol' Marty B quite a few times. His feet didn't even reach the rudder pedals! I think things have changed in just a few years! Thanks for the update Jeff. SM)
