A FLOAT PLANE is lifted from Foster Lake Tuesday, July 25, after capsizing.

A float plane capsized Tuesday afternoon, July 25, while traveling across Foster Lake at low speed pulling a girl on an inner tube.

No one was injured, and the plane was recovered from the lake.

The plane, a 1960 Champion piloted by John Andrew McKinney, 57, of Lebanon, set out on the surface of Foster Lake from Shea Point, traveling east to Calkins Park and then north toward Lewis Creek Park before heading back toward Shea Point, located at the city limits on the south side of Foster Lake. The plane was on the water for about an hour before it capsized.
