Seaplane landing Tuesday 6/24 @7:15am in front of the Four Seasons Biltmore. This footage was shot by me on an ipad from 500 yards or so.

The plane did some really low altitude fly-byes (15 feet or so) over a yacht and inflatable with a landing light flashing, so when I realized what was about to happen I grabbed the ipad and ran down to the beach and caught it on video. The quality isn't great but you can tell what is happening. After the landing the inflatable towed the plane to the harbor. I talked to some people that saw the plane tied up to the live bait dock and Kevin Costner was there too. Maybe filming a movie or something?

Later that same day around 2:30pm they towed the plane back out to the same spot and it took off and it did a fly-by over the same yacht and then it disappeared into the horizon.
