This is a Grumman G21A Goose which gave me my very first airplane ride in 1952! Great picture!

It's always great to see a seaplane, great shot!

Great action shot! Listen to those P&W's howl!!

Not all round motors are P&W. There are also Curtiss, Franklin, Jacobs. And that is just from North America. Almost half of the EU countries also have firms that have sold or do sell aircraft rotaries.

Hey if adelma wants to imagine the "howl" of P&W's, no need to shoot him down. By the way they are probably Wright R-1820's

while there are manufacture's of radials (a rotary was only used during WW I), the G-21 Goose came from the U.S. and had PW

Powerplant: 2 × Pratt & Whitney R-985-AN-6 Wasp Junior 9-cylinder air-cooled radial piston engines, 450 hp (340 kW) each
