    A little off topic the Spruce Goose is about 30 miles North of me. Howard Hughes built it. Powered by radial engines, could have been twins.

    At one time Amphibious BIG planes where not that uncommon. Kudos to the Chinese and Russian on those fine flying machines.

        China's locally built and developed AG600 amphibious aircraft is expected to be available for delivery to customers by 2022, the state-owned Xinhua news agency quoted the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) as saying on 13 May.

        "We are endeavouring to get the airworthiness certification from the civil aviation authorities by 2021, and deliver it [the aircraft] to the customers by 2022," said AG600 chief designer Huang Lingcai, who did not name any countries as possible customers.
