Putting up this photo of one of my favorite planes. It is actually a photo of a model. Can anyone tell me what's wrong here? I spotted it right away.

Weren't there also aircraft by Grumman called Teal and Widgeon?


Skip, the only "Teal" I have heard of is a homebuilt. Like Kevin mentioned, the Grummans were named from the smallest to the largest, "Widgeon, Goose, Mallard, and Albatross". All very fine aircraft! I've worked on all but the Mallard.

I am not familiar with the Teal but the Widgeon is a pretty common aircraft. I think John Hansen has some experience with them. I wouldn't mind owning any of the Grumman amphibs. Widgeon, Mallard, Duck, Goose, Albatross..

John, glad you posted the pics of the Grumann Goose, I took this pic about 8 years ago at Bundaberg Queensland and always wondered what type of plane it was now I know.

Robert, I think you're right....seems that Fred said they'd painted it a solid color for the movie. I haven't ever been able to sit through the movie, so haven't put eyes on it in there. I know the guy that did the mechanic work on both that and the TV show, so he was telling me about the history.

You might be more apt to recognize it in this paint scheme, which it wore during it's career in a TV series called "Tails of the Gold Monkey". It was also featured in a movie called Comando.


So it was in the movie 'Commando' starring Arnold Schwarzenegger? IIRC it was painted solid white or silver - been a few years since I've seen this movie.

Here's another of the sweeties I worked on. Grumman Goose N327. This was in '95 at Bayview Airport, WA.

Unfortunately, after Jim Chrysler sold it, it went back to New York state and met a firey mishap...both occupants got out just fine.


Last word I got, it had been bought and was being rebuilt. It should be close to flying again by now.

Well, here's the Stinson I'm currently working on. It's a 108-3 and will have an IO-390 Lycoming, MT composite prop, my aux fuel STC, and about 50 other mods. Somehow, I've wound up doing quite a few of these....good planes! I hand formed a new firewall, boot cowl, and door frames, not to mention straightening and "massaging" almost every metal part in this plane.



This was the last Stinson I did...
