The 1938 Grumman Amphibian, commonly known as the "Goose", was Grumman's first aircraft produced for private and commercial use rather than military. Despite its commercial intention, this eight-seater saw most of its action in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard. Models fitted with anti-icing equipment and autopilot were used by the coast Guard in chilly Northern waters.This 1938 U.S. Coast Guard Grumman Goose is another fine quality Gearbox collectible with limited edition production.
