Grumman J2F Duck
The Grumman J2F Duck (company designation G-15) was an American single-engine amphibious biplane. It was used by each major branch of the U.S. armed forces from the mid-1930s until just after World War II, primarily for utility and air-sea rescue duties. The J2F was used by the U.S. Navy, Marines, Army Air Forces, and Coast Guard; apart from general utility and light transport duties its missions included mapping, scouting/observation, anti-submarine patrol, air-sea rescue work, photographic surveys and reconnaissance, and target tug. The J2F was an improved version of the earlier JF Duck, with its main difference being a longer float.
