Re: HUGE Flying Boat

Ok, that's a pretty impressive craft!

Scooping 25 tons of water while flying 60-70 knots is almost unbelievable!

Talk to Jimmy Buffet. He has a two engine seaplane, a Grumman Goose, and two Sportsmobiles. What more do you need?

Re: HUGE Flying Boat

Those are the largest ever in service. I got to fly a Grumman Albatrossabout ten years ago and it was a wonderfull Aircraft. I almost bought a Grumman Goose when the State of Alaska sold off the last three Airframes they had around the same time.
