    Very nice, I have always liked the He115 its one of those types that tend to be overlooked but did an excellent job in a demanding role.

    Thanks, I am uploading more on german seaplanes.

    Definately, intially the production was cancelled in 1942 but the factory reopened its production line in 1944 due the increased demand for this type.

    You probably know this but the RAF used at least one. It was fitted with a number of 0.303 mg's, up to about 8 if I remember correctly.

    That's quite a big "bird" to be on floats. Reminds me a C-47 I saw, one
    time, on floats.

    Nice pictures, The trie-engine Ju-52 also used floaters in some variants.

    A rare Luftwaffe sea bird, the Arado AR-95 doing some torpedo test.
