"I expected a video that talked about the airplane, its history, performance, etc. All it is is a bunch of repetitive video of a regional airline using G-73s in florida taking off and landing with mininmal narration or information."
Excellent footage of the Mallard.

"Better than what Gene Pope says it is.
There is minimal 'information' on history etc, but the video makes up for it with great footage of water take off & landings. Even some air to air footage. It covers 2 flights: Miami to Bimini & Miami to Key West.
This DVD is made with Chalks International Airline in Miami. The in plane footage has pilot conversions between themselves & over the radio with ATC & other aircraft. There is a bit of history about Chalks' Airline included.
A good movie if you like to watch boat planes.
I hope they have one on the HU-16 Albatross in the series."
