Always nice to see a seaplane (Lake 250).
What do you know about the pink, unmarked aircraft, which I think is a Beech Mentor ?

Pete - Yes it's a Beech T-34A Mentor, built in 1953 for the USAF & carried serial 53-4178 it was sold on to the civil market in 1964, from what I can find online the aircraft is still active in the USA.

As an add on to the pic of VR-CHJ I & a group of friends were lucky to be offered a pleasure flight in it one evening back in 1992 - here's a pic of Guernsey taken from 30,000 feet or thereabouts. (Bragging over) ;)
