       Just to let everyone know, I am fine.  No injury to either myself or 
my student. We had an engine failure of some unknown orgin at this time and 
had to land the New Pitts S2C in the South River near Annapolis, Maryland.  
There was no suitable land area close enough with out risking hitting a home 
or dwelling of some type.  
       I might just recount this in the future for all those who wonder what 
happens when the plane hits the water.  We will show you the pictures in the 
             For now I have to get ready for an Airshow tomorrow, so more
