My guess is DC-9, Jas.

Looks like a bit of a graveyard behind the brand new Caravan.

Certainly correct is a DC-9. Easily half a dozen ex Cebu Pacific DC-9s littered around the GA area as well as old 732s, Trislanders, DC-3s and amazingly a Connie! Will get some more photos in the coming weeks.

To the right of the Caravan nose is a Yak 40 and a good old Aztec too. Looks like it's almost in Qantas colours. Now there is a seed for a new Qantas rumour.

Nothing like an Embraer 170. The cabin windows are the wrong size/shape and it doesn't have the front service door. It's a YAK.

I think Aussie Nick is looking at the background to the right of the seaplane (Embraer) with the Yak(?) on the left hand side

Nope, that's a DC-9 on the left and yep it's a Yak on the right.

Come on boys and girls, I thought professional pilots could pick their aeroplanes! Back to spotters school!

Anyway, back to the pics!

You're lucky I picked the one front and centre was a float plane!

I'm seeing wheels on them there floats!

Thanks for the link! .... Either type of seaplane may also have landing gear suitable for land, making the vehicle an amphibious aircraft.

I was attempting to educate the young-ins. I should have put a smilie on the end of my post!

PS. I'll go you halves!

Sorry Buddy, I put them there hoping someone could add more photographic evidence or comment. There was a lot of manufacturers experimenting in those days, (look at the side windows for a year), and I'm guessing it is one such example. The "gun-Bo" seems genuine enough for the African Continent.
