Tradewind & Ju188, blue : primary seaplanes

nr. 8 in a series of 9, each giving its wings to the next, in a cycle :

Yes, this is of concern:   Hope the sea is smooth & it's not in the path of a cyclone ! ;D

Diorama of appropriately equipped seaplane tender (AV) doing turnaround (fuel, rearm, pilot) would be fascinating.   :smiley:  ;)

It was reported during the first test flight the V-1 engine tore the top wing off and the combination flew off into the distance never to be seen again!

These combos are cracking me up! Keep it going!
