This “is a bit concerning. Silver Lake is not an area that is amenable for plane traffic,” says Rehoboth Beach Comm. Lorraine Zellers after this float plane was discovered docked along Lake Drive last week. Both state police and FAA say no reports of emergency landings were received.
According to FAA records, the owner of the plane with tail number N711 is Apache Cub Systems.
To add a bit to the mystery, the address for Apache Cub Systems is about a block from the notorious National Aircraft Leasing Corp. on Kennett Pike in Greenville, Del. According to various news reports, the National Aircraft Leasing Corp. has been leasing airplanes to the FBI which fly in circles all day long in metropolitan areas.
