Water Bomber at twilight




A Grumman, now retired from two careers , rests in the field next to the airport at Weed California. Last light of the day illuminates 14,000′  Mt. Shasta in the distance. Western tour rolls on. 





About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    The Grumman S-2 airplanes that are still in use in firefighting have often been converted to turboprops. This one may be sitting there waiting to be cannibalized or converted to turboprops.

    Grumman made ’em strong.

    That is the first plane my dad started flying for the navy. Then he moved to another Grumman. A new fangled jet called the A-6 Intruder. He flew with the first squadron commissioned and the last squadron decommissioned! . Thanks for the picture.
