It's amazing that the aircraft didn't break up... wow. Thanks for finding this. Hal

I'm glad it was salvaged. Maybe it'll fly again.

On land that's called doing donuts & they probably left skid marks in something other than the ground. I'm amazed that it didn't break up too or suffer major structural damage due to g & water forces

I always thought the Do 24 was one of the nicest looking flying boats

You can see the rudders are kicked to "full right." Something in the water must have spooked the pilot. Beautiful aircraft.
