Permission to show the first 47 images of this lovely craft has been kindly granted by our Russian correspondent Igor Kolokolov, who was fortunate to be able to get in-close to each of them whilst flying operations were underway, lucky man! Many thanks, Igor..!

The  following 26 images come from the camera of our long-standing UK correspondent, Stuart 'Reggie' Martindale following his close encounter with a UC-1 in Ireland - see the SEAWINGS Walk-Round Gallery. Our grateful thanks goes to Reggie, thanks mate.

If anyone else has images of the STOL UC-1 Twin Bee please send them into SEAWINGS for inclusion here.
