A few of you may remember my talking about this DC-3/C-53 on floats in the comments on the Gazing Skyward TV page awhile back.

This interview conducted by David Quam (Founder of the Seaplane Pilots Association), was posted yesterday. It is fascinating to hear how this rather unique amphibian came about.

One fascinating fact is Max estimates it cost around $600,000 to design and engineer the fixtures and struts that were needed to attach the two pontoons!
