Here's something you don't see every day, a Grumman Goose in USCG colors. I am going to have to build that Lindberg kit I have.

Nice. I saw one of these operated by Sea Bee Air in New Zealand land in the Bay of Islands & come ashore at the Paihia terminal, ie taxi up the beach & swing around on a pad off the carpark. Cool aircraft with a great sound. Unfortunately many years pre cell phone & no camera with me, was on the job at the time, so I can't put up a vid. One on youtube though .
 
At one time that same airfield had some stripped out Grumman HU-16 Albatross sitting around. I was surprised to read that the USAF actually had a lot more of those aircraft than did the USN.
