Post by: Flathorn on August 11, 2022, 08:01:06 AM

There is one set here attahced to the roof of a hangar.  Complete with riggings.  They were on a 391b.

The owner is on this website.  He owns C-GOII

Another set not far away.  Installed on a 391b. The plane is for sale since a thousand years.  Dr. Thomas

Quite incredible performance on what i hear from pilot who saw Dr. Thomas when he was flying on floats

In the logbook of a 250 that is based here in MOntreal, we can see that it was on flaots for some time.  Amphibious.  Don't remember wich ones.  May be Edo
