Product Description
Grumman’s decision to build an amphibian in which wealthy owners could commute from Long Island to New York’s East River was a huge gamble. It would be the company’s largest aircraft and the first for the civilian market.

The gamble paid off and the Goose was soon also being bought by military customers around the world. The smaller Widgeon was introduced in 1940, with similar success, and after World War Two the Mallard was hailed as the most graceful amphibian aircraft yet built.

This book documents the development of all three types and gives detailed coverage of world-wide military and civilian operators, with full details of all the many modifications and conversions carried out on all three types.

625 monochrome photos, 75 in colour. Other illustrations include drawings, maps, advertisements, brochures, timetables and philatelic items. Appendices cover the detailed history of each of the 721 airframes built, including the French-built SCAN-30 Widgeons.

Without doubt, the most comprehensive coverage of these iconic aircraft yet.
