    Very widely used seaplane in the early years, and flew on till the end of the war. Never truely replaced by the Kingfisher.

    We should have this bird.

    Wouldn`t it be nice if it could be launched off a catapult and recovered back to same ship
    (obviously a pipe dream)
    A nice plane to have but at the end of the day its a fixed float seaplane just like the OS2U.
    And although i would fly it i find the lack of seaplane bases and or tenders anoying

    why would we want this plane as a flyable as opposed to AI? what will it be able to do as a flyable?

    J2F Grumman Duck Yellownet. Yeah she's ugly, but I'm sure she sure was pretty to downed airman what had been floating around for a couple hour.
