A friend forwarded me a set of pictures of four T6 Harvard aircraft from The Flying Lions Aerobatic Team from South Africa,water-skiing across the Klipdrift Dam near Johannesburg, South Africa. I couldn't find the original pictures (the team's homepage doesn't have them; it appears they are now under different sponsorship), but a quick google turn up lots of pictures and a video.
