Hi Steinar,

At last Ive remembered to send you those Seabee pictures! I donít have them on my computer, so had to connect up my backup disk to find them.

Unfortunately I donít know the identity of either, if you find out pls let me know.

You are free to use them on your website with me credited as the photographer.

The pictures with this email were taken at Mar Del Plata Aeroclub airfield in March 2006, I also saw the aircraft in the same place 3 or 4 years earlier, stored in a hangar with an Aero 45 and a couple of PA-11 frames!

Iíll send the other pictures in another email as this one is already big.

Cheers

Nigel

This is the other Seabee I saw, this was about 15 miles from Mar Del Plata Aeroclub, at a place called Sierra De La Padres (correct is Sierra de los Padres), its part of the collection of Adolfo T Cobreros, so I was told. Apart from that I know nothing, I was taken there by someone from Mar Del Plata.

Cheers

Nigel
