LAKE MARTIN, AL (WSFA) -

If you lived through the 80's you probably remember the show "Fantasy Island" where Tatu said "the plane, the plane."  It was a sea plane touching down in the water.

At Lake Martin, sea planes are now fantasy.  It's a reality thanks to Bessemer resident Charles Welden.   He runs one of the few sea plane schools in the Southeast.  If you'd like to learn to fly check out his website.
