Hotson and Rodina's history of this outstanding aircraft has been greeted as one of the finest aircraft "biographies" to appear in recent years. The handsome amphibian, built in the 1940s and '50s, has seen a variety of roles, from stylish executive transport to Caribbean island-hopping to coastal air service in British Columbia. Today it is prized by wealthy collectors, and some of the finest examples, with sweeping lines, bright colours and meticulously detailed interiors, have been lovingly restored to their original configuration. One Mallard, magnificently restored in the hands of expert Steve Hamilton, was Grand Champion at the 2001 Oshkosh gathering of classic aircraft. The Grumman Mallard lives on as one of aviations enduring classics. This book, based on years of experience and research, is full of details, anecdotes and photos of its many lives.
