Video of the Week: Glenn Curtiss Museum’s America Flying Boat Recreation Takes to the Skies


Recommend a Video |VOTW Archive

We periodically check YouTube for new videos from the folks at the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, hoping to see what’s going on with their “Project America,” an ongoing effort by the museum to construct a fully-functional and authentic replica of the twin-engine Curtiss seaplane. We’ve shared videos of the construction and water debut of America 2.0 in the past, but this weekend she actually took a real-world flight – and thanks to Dan Kaake, you can see how things went on New York’s Keuka Lake.

(You can find a few photos here.)
