S38 in the UK
'Osa's Ark' flew over the UK yesterday.
August 31: The Sikorsky S38 seaplane replica making a trip across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for European charities Aviation Without Borders and Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen (Wings of Help) passed through the UK yesterday, stopping at Inverness and Norwich for fuel.
The aircraft, named ‘Osa's Ark’, was originally planned to stop at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford in Cambridgeshire, but strong winds resulted in a diversion to Norwich Airport before pilots Tom Schrade, Bruno Gantenbrink and Dr Ulf Merbold departed for Europe.
