Seaplane flips over, but pilot unharmed

An airplane flipped over when it made contact with the sea. The seaplane is designed to take off and alight on water. However, some models of these floatplanes can’t handle waves greater than twelve inches. And on March twenty-fourth, a routine exercise shook up fifty-seven year old James Glen Wagner, the pilot. Wagner, a United States Citizen of Lakeland Florida, said that on Saturday after taking guests to Placencia Village in his seaplane, he took off again and intended to land in the sea near Abalone Caye. But the seaplane with registration numbers N208SS, flipped on contact. Wagner did not sustain any injuries and the plane was later moored on Abalone Caye.

    I thought seaplanes were prohibited in Belize.
