This bulletin board is more and more becoming a WWII aircraft site, but whatever?
The US Army ordered 31 Goose (geese?)as observation/communication aircraft in 1938.
The US Navy and the Coast Guard ordered more and used them as utility transports and for target towing and photographic survey.
The major part (190 aircraft) was used for photographic survey.
The Goose was also supplied to the British, Canadian and Portuguese air forces.
Even in my country Sweden one Grumman Goose with the designation Tp 81 was in service between 1951 and 1962.
