This photo seems to capture the spirit of the Grummann Ag-Cat.

I worked one of these in indonesia in the early 1970s and fell in love with it from day one ! I can't remember but i think it used the 240 horsepower engine, and we always seemed to use it in very hot weather and very over - loaded !! so it was extremely thirsty - oh for the days of cheap gas !!!

I remember climbing up a banana plantation on a steep hillside in the early morning, and doing a sort of not-quite-stall turn at the top before running down again.... amazing the crazy stuff young men do.
