We are indebted to our Brazilian correspondent, Stefano, for allowing us to use the pictures in this gallery which show stages in the restoration of the sole surviving historic SM-55, named 'Jahu', based in Sao Paulo. This is a long term project which appears to have been carried out with skill and I, for one, cannot wait to see the finished flying boat. Many thanks, Stefano.
