Now whale you look at that! A ‘de Havilland’ Beaver lining up for a smooth landing at Angoon Bay on July 10, narrowly avoids hitting a humpback whale while being inches away from touching down.
The DHC-2 coming in from Sitka, Alaska, suddenly pulls up when a spout of water rises up into the air, right in front of the airplane, skimming the back of the whale.
Angoon, with a population of 459, is only accessible by boat or float plane.
Beavers, whales, nature… So much beauty in one short video!
