Nice!!! and that one is an old Republic Seabee!
Rev. Paul,My husband said thank you for sharing this post with us. He worked at that postal site just off the side there next to where those water planes came in. He loves these old planes.
Thanks, NFO - I had a feeling you'd like 'em, too. Sandy, you can tell your husband that I'm happy to share. I love those planes, too, and have spent many happy hours at Lake Hood, watching the floatplanes comes & go.
Oh, just...Wow!@ Old NFO: Didn't you start out in those?
Man, what a sweet bird.
ML, I share that "wow!" factor with. And play nice with Old NFO, ya hear?Borepatch, agreed. I'm not a pilot, but that one makes me want to fly. Okay, that one and B-17s. :)
I thought it was a Grumman Goose?
Oh that is awesome!So very cool. :)-J
Great looking plane!
Murph- NO, but I did get to fly in one... :-)
drjim, it's a Grumman Goose; the Seabee has a center-mounted pusher prop.Jenny, I thought you'd like those pics. :)Agreed, Kelly. Those old planes give me goosebumps, no matter how many times I see 'em.NFO, let's be careful about dating ourselves ... I don't know about you, but I'm youthening. That's my story & I'm sticking to it!
