Lake Hood, situated right next to the international airport of Anchorage, must surely be the world's busiest seaplane base. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon just sitting here, feet dangling in the water and the camera at hand, with all sorts of seaplanes speeding along every few minutes. Pictured here is Ketchum's DHC-3 Otter N234KA (msn 42), which was still a "real" Otter back then. It was converted to a Turbo Otter some time during the 1990's. (29 May 1990 - Anchorage, AK)
