A Grumman SA-16B Triphibian (Air Force SAR #51-0043) project airframe has hit the market. The listing states (in part):
TT:6915.7. Built in 1951, It was flown in the U.S. Air-Force until 1972 when it was retired in Tucson, AZ. It has been in storage in Tucson since retirement. It is a low time Air Force Long wing “B”, it would be nice to find someone, that would like to make the investment to restore the old bird. It was once owned by Charlie Blair and Maureen Ohara, of Antilles Air Boats. It does have some storage rash in some places but it is a real nice airframe.
The aircraft is located in Vail, Arizona and is currently being offered with a starting bid of US $12,000. Click here to check out the complete listing.
