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!
