FINALLY! We've been waiting what Bill? Something like 3 years now for Fred & Colin to get that book finished and to the publisher....

I am SO looking forward to getting my copy! :D :D :D

Same here, but I know there are going to be errors.

That's the spirit! Always keep a positive attitude. In other words, you're positive that there will be errors, right? ;)

As I just posted under the Flying Boat Reference Books section:

I can tell you that I finally received my copy of Fred Knight's new book...

"The Grumman Amphibians - Goose, Widgeon, & Mallard"

and about all I can say is...

WOW!!!!

It's gorgeous and so absolutely slam-packed with data and details - beyond my wildest imagination!!!

Thanks Fred (and Colin) :D :D :D :D :D

It looks to me as if all you other Grumman fans can just throw away your old copies of
Mitch Mayborn's Grumman Guidebook
or
Steve Ginter's Naval Fighters 63 Grumman Goose
'cuz they be obsolete now!
