We saw this old bird land about 100 yards from our boat on Sunday. My son thought it was a German seaplane from the 1930's. It landed near the waterfront mansion owned by the family that owns one of the big casinos.
The seaplane is most likely a U. S. designed/built (circa 1928 Sikorsky S-38 and may be an aircraft mentioned in the following article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikorsky_S-38
