As I just posted elsewhere, in both the Flying Boat Reference Books and the Grumman G-21A Reference Archives sections...

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!
