First Flight of ICON A5 Prototype

Found this one on facebook. I wrote about the Icon A5 sport plane a while back here, when it was first hyped on Uncrate. Again, it's a suprisingly small, but sturdily built plane and also relatively affordable considering price of small aircraft today (click on the linked article below for actual price). The youtube description is as follows: First test flight of the ICON A5 amphibious sport plane. ICON's team of engineers conducted the full-scale prototype flight on July 9, 2008 in California.
