CF-HYX  republic RC-3 Seabee                        (c/n  775)


                                              This nice shot (shouldn't really say that, since I took it myself in 1959) is the same one that I use
                                              in the 'Classics' selection to illustrate a Seabee.   What makes it so classic is that it is still in standard
                                              Republic livery, as delivered from the plant at Farmingdale, Long Island in 1947.   Since only 1060
                                              (plus one prototype) were built, this one, as the 775th was a late model.  It had disappeared from
                                              the Canadian register by the mid 1960s and I suspect it was repatriated south of the border.
