Evening everyone.

I am completely stumped right now trying to figure out what kind of plane this belongs to. I was given a hint that it was some sort of flying boat/seaplane but for the life of me I can't figure out what it is! I thought it may be a Short Sunderland III but the windows don't match up. Anyway... I'd love the help everyone! Thanks in advance!

Just a guess-- Latecoere 631.

The window layout seems to be that of the Saunders-Roe Princess if that's any help.

Definitely a Latecoere 631: http://images.google.com/images?q=la...n&gbv=2&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=2&start=0.

Wow!
