About 30 seaplanes will land on Indiana’s Lake James this weekend a part of the 11th annual Seaplane Splash at Pokagon State Park north of Fort Wayne.

Randy Strebig of the Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association says many of the planes are from the 1940s and 1960s. The
(Angola, Ind.) Herald Republican reports the planes will land and take off in Lake James. The aircraft will be parked either on the beach or the lawn of the Potawatomi Inn.

Strebig says some of the pilots travel hundreds of miles for the event. All activities will be on the beach and the inn’s lawn area.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
