Splash-In at Fantasy of Flight

March 27-April 1, 2012

The SUN ’n FUN Splash-In will once again be held at Fantasy of Flight on Lake Agnes in Polk City, Florida. The Splash-In, an event dedicated to seaplanes and float flying, is held every year as part of the fly-in. A few years ago, Fantasy of Flight owner Kermit Weeks invited the seaplanes to his facility and it has been there ever since. This year’s Splash-In will be held Thursday, March 29. The Splash-In site at Lake Agnes will be operational Wednesday, March 28, through Friday, March 30. There will be a fly-by briefing at 9 a.m. March 29 for seaplane pilots who want to participate in the fly-by, slated to begin at 10:30 a.m. All seaplanes in the fly-by will fly from Lake Agnes to Lakeland-Linder Regional Airport, home of the SUN ’n FUN campus. After returning from the fly-by, pilots will compete in a variety of contests, including water-bombing and spot landing. Friday, March 30, has been designated the rain date for the Splash-In festivities. A seaplane banquet will be held, rain or shine, Thursday, March 29, in the Fantasy of Flight banquet hall. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at Sun-n-Fun. org. Find out more about Fantasy of Flight and Kermit Weeks’ collection of airplanes at
