Republic SeaBee (multiple)

I photographed this 1947-vintage Republic SeaBee during the HFF’s Vintage Air Show in 2016. In the movie “The Man With The Golden Gun” James Bond flies a SeaBee to the island and can be seen on the beach when he arrives and being destroyed by the solar gun. There also is a two-engine version called the UC-1 Twin Bee.
