Honestly this thread is incomprehensible in what it tries to put forth. This is because the topic started as just a set of links and quotes from newspapers which are against our rules. Why don't you try to find the original topic and add something in your own words on what is going on including the fact there is a manufacturer in Greensboro that is looking to start building Gruman's seaplanes again.
