Pictures & Video Of Erik Johnstons Video Shoot With A Special Old Lady Known As The Grumman Duck

The Mid America Flight Museum has acquired a Grumman Duck J2F, one of only four, according to Scott Glover, who flew the plane that was built in 1939. Our friend Erik Johnston shot some amazing video on the plane, which quickly gained more than 500 views after it was published on Erik’s Youtube. According to Glover this plane is a Pearl Harbour survivor and had been sunk in a fresh lake for almost 40 years. After a huge restoration effort the plane only gained 50 hours of flight time. Glover is one of few who have flown the plane. The beauty is equipped with a 750 H.P. engine with amazing soundand tends to jump off the water.

Pictures were sent to us by Nicholas Viggiano and we already look forward to the next batch of pics & videos!

There are a lot of beautiful Aviation museums across the country that have their own particular mission.  Mid America Flight Museum is based in Mt. Pleasant Texas (KOSA). The museum differentiates itself from many other museums in that the great majority of the airplanes in the museum fly on a regular basis, and that ongoing projects are being restored to fly! The long term mission of the museum is to honor veterans, mentor kids, preserving aviation history and providing opportunity for community involvement. Mid America Flight Museum is located in 602 Mike Hall Pkwy Mount Pleasant, Texas, TX 75455 an you can find them online via: midamericaflightmuseum.org

  1. I am really impressed with Erik Johnston’s videography. The quality of the video is excellent, and he has a sharp eye when it comes to catching aircraft and other artifacts from “just the right angle.”

    He also does a good job interviewing folks while he’s “behind the camera,” and his editing skills contribute to the overall video.

    I always look forward to watching his videos.

  2. We’ll make sure he will see your nice comment. Second to none work and very cool people surround him.
