THE FLYING BOATS...

On the last years of the eighty decade Viana harbour was invaded by a fleet of rapid launches that we called them flying boats ", because they surf on the water like a hydro-aeroplane planning over the water .

They had a engine power  of normally six motors about 1200 BHP to 1500 BHP , so they had a very high speed that permit, in a few seconds, go from the old pilot station to the end of the north breakwater .

Stern of them grow up a water-jet occulting the launches. It's impressing see and hear the performance of that spectacle .

The immense quantity of gasoline and oil they spend, it 's also impressing and incredible .

One night , a lot of them , I don't remember yet the exactly number of them enter in fire and destroyed .

Someone said that it was a  retaliation , but exactly nobody know 's what happen .

One thing we know , after that, stopped the strange movement   of  "flying boats " coming in and out during the night time .

One of them, damaged by the fire ,was arrested by the authorities and stay a long time over the quay, on the north-west corner of commercial dock as we can see on the picture below for the posterity.
