Is a privately owned aircraft allowed to carry US Army markings?
sam kuminecz
Colin. I'm assuming you have never been to an airshow. Yes you can carry us military markings on aircraft, even ex military aircraft privately owned. As long as the registration is visible.
Richard Ashley
I do not think the US Army ever flew DeHavilland Beavers on floats

Anyone know the purpose of what's protruding downward (and looks like upward) from the edge of the horizontal stabilizer? A little extra stability on water? Same with the "fin" under the rear fuselage?

Good job...

That's Seattle Seahawk tight end Jimmy Graham's 1957 DHC-2 Beaver. Kenmore restored. 2017 SUN'N FUN Grand Champion Seaplane winner (http://www.flysnf.org/sun-n-fun-intl-fly-expo/activities/aircraft-judging/2017-judging-awards/).

Nice shot! Go Hawks!

My home squadron, 400 Sqn RCAF, Canada's oldest continuously flying Sqn., flew these great machines during the 60's and 70's. We were an Air Reserve Sqn then. Our aircraft were fitted variously with wheels, amphibious floats, and skis depending on the mission and time of year. A real workhorse. Great photo.

Probably to compensate for the floats while flying.

I have seen many beavers in my time growing up & living in BC, this is the sweetest one yet. Yhanks

When I was stationed in Fairbanks Alaska we had Beavers and Otters on floats and Skis.

The vertical stabilisers can be found on many float planes. They are installed on some float planes to offset the increased surface area of the floats in front of the center of gravity of the aircraft.

In other words, they reduce the instability caused by the floats on the aircraft.

Great photo!
