All lakes in Minnesota are State owned, not city owned. The park surrounding the lake is controlled by the city. Planes can land on state owned lakes. The problem these two planes may have is that there are height requirements involving populated areas and controlled by MSP International.

Several years back I pondered the legality of landing my skiplane on city lakes. I went so far as to call the aero division of mndot. It turns out that seaplanes are regulated, skiplanes are (were) not. Mr "Gruffy" on the line cautioned me against doing it though... Good for them! So good to hear they are out enjoying the day! Wish I was along for the ride!!!

don't you have to file flight plans? i assume that it wouldn't allow for deviation and that common sense in today's climate would suggest not doing something like this. i also don't know what went through their mind to think they could land anywhere they want as if it was their property (especially in an urban area).
