NTSB Report: Low Altitude Shenanigans Encounter Power Lines

The NTSB has published the final report regarding a fatal crash involving a Super Petrol from the summer of 2023, where a seaplane flew into a set of powerlines while skimming along the lake at low altitude. “The private pilot/owner and the student pilot/passenger departed in the amphibious airplane and flew to a local lake where they were observed conducting a touch-and-go landing and flying low over the water. One witness, who was on his boat dock about 100 yards from a set of energized powerlines that spanned the lake, reported that the airplane was flying level about 100 to 200 ft above the water toward the powerlines.
