    Default 20 points if you can name the TV series...

    This refugee from a popular '80s TV series was snapped in dry-dock at Universal Studios in Florida. Can you identify the aircraft and name the show?



    Regards

    Good guesses but no. To be fair, the seaplane was painted in different colours - red and white. The series apeared in the early '80s and was an Indiana Jones-type story, involving the adventures of a Flying Tigers pilot having a break from combat. It's just appeared on DVD after a long dispute over the soundtrack.

    Regards

    Jon'.

    Sorry. Been watching the Sevens all weekend, and not spent any time reading up on NSN... shame. Perhaps the weekend would have been spent better sitting indoors rather than have to watch those dreadful performances from England...

    Mat Wins. I didn't see he'd already mentioned it at the bottom of his post!

    It's a Grumman Goose, BTW, not a Catalina. V cool little planes. Didn't they do a Turbo Goose for a while?

    Here's a Catalina from Duxford last year - it's a wee bit bigger than the Goose.

    Not sure who won. I left in protest after the South Africa game. And then again after the New Zealand game. Crumbs, we really are useless.

    Apparently some chaps from down unde fluked a final. Hey ho. Samoa in Scotland?
