 From Bob Leonard, Kodiak Airways Pilot from 1961 through 1967. During my 5,784.2 hours of Grumman Amphibian flying with Kodiak Airways, (and Island Flying Service, Nassau, Bahamas), a good amount of the G-21A Goose flying was in N69263. My log book shows my first flight in N69263 was on February 18, 1963. I flew 263, for Kodiak Airways until my last flight July 27, 1967. We were flying 3 Goose aircraft. Each aircraft flew a bit different. Sadly, now in 2012, my memory is such that I cannot give you any details as to how it's handling might be different from the other 2 Goose we flew. I felt comfortable with the P&W 985 engines and we all know that the aircraft was built by Grumman Iron Works. You really had to screw up to bend anything on the bottom of the hull. It was strong and tough. And, it could carry a load too.
