These are a set of pontoons that may be attached to a plane’s landing gear enabling it to land in water.   A  fancier set has the wheels also attached at the same time and they suspect that a pontoon shifted down and it had 1 wheel down and 1 pontoon down causing it to dig into the runway on takeoff.Riley

We’d like to welcome Riley (aka Hot Rod)!  He is the newest addition to Lonnie and Marilyn’s family!  What a cutie!!010
