What a beautiful aircraft. Can easily see the underlying military design. Heavy-duty, powerful, purpose-driven. Have not yet researched this specific aircraft but ~100 were built in Canada under contract with Grumman.

Grumman Iron Works. 2 R1820's flying in close formation.

R1820's was the very first engine I trained on with the USCG. 1978. Never forget how exciting that was even after 38 years of aviation.

Great shot. I actually would love to own that A/C.

Thanks for comments. SERGE, I have nothing but absolute respect for the pilots of any water-bombing aircraft. Sadly, it is a very dangerous profession.

The aircrews that fly these missions understand the risk of their profession. What they do is courageous, not sad.

I remember every summer i the 60's they would have one on display at the Canadian National Exhibition

I had a Navy S2 Parked beside my UH-1H VIP bird at Seoul Airbase in 1972. It was cool to watch those guys crank that thing up . It was good for mosquito control.
