    D@#$, look familiar. Is it a walrus? I think I have a picture at home of one of these and I am stuck at work.

    It looks like the Beriev, it also looks like a single -engine Grumman Goose - but I'm stumped.

    And Joe gets it!!!!!!!!!!

    It's a Fleetwing Seabird. The interesting thing about this plane was it was stainless steel.

    And for getting it right, Joe, you win a big bag full of nothing!
