Variations of this plane served as medical transport, air taxi and photo-reconnaissance.  Designed for a crew of two, pilot and rear gunner, a third crewman could be added in the space behind the wing in the float.

Donated to the EAA Aviation Foundation in 1974, a fourteen month restoration projected began in 1982 resulted in how the plane appears today.  This plane can be found at EAA Airventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
