walk-round has been generously donated by Rod Larson, Webmaster of the
WarBird Photos web site - click
to visit - and features the only remaining 'Emily' anywhere in
the world. It is on display in the grounds of a park in Tokyo, Japan and has undergone
restoration to bring it up to a very high standard of finish; they even
replaced the window and turret perspex where it had cracked and faded
due to exposure outside in the elements. Really though, a flying boat
of this importance should be under cover in a museum somewhere,
preferably where one can walk through it. The apparent colour changes in
some of the pictures is due to it having rained during Rod's
visit! Note also the netting over the engines to keep the bird's out.
Many thanks, Rod.
