the Springbank Air Training College Aviat Husky A1 was on a floats training flight at the Bearspaw Reservoir near Springbank, AB, with a student and instructor on board. Following a low pass over the water to check for debris, and a circuit back to the reservoir, the aircraft nosed over abruptly upon touchdown. The aircraft was equipped with amphibious floats, and after the aircraft came to rest, floating inverted, the wheels were observed to be in the down position. The occupants, who were uninjured, were able to evacuate the aircraft and move to the bottom of the floats. They were rescued via a canoe operated by individuals who saw the occurrence. It was not necessary for the pilots to inflate the inflatable vests which they had worn for the flight.
