Seaplanes in the Adirondacks

Carrying lumber by sea plane in the Town of Webb

Thick forests and deep snow make many parts of the Adirondacks hard to access. Enter the seaplane. With floats instead of landing wheels, these planes could land anywhere with a sizable body of water, giving increased access to many parts of the Adirondacks park. As a result, seaplanes were used to do everything from stocking fish to dropping hay for deer. Here are some photos of Adirondack seaplanes in use.
