The box the SD3-30 came in!

That just looks like an incredibly small wing in proportion to the size of the aircraft. (But I guess it works!)

Great photo

Hershey bar wings, but the fuselage actually creates 13% of the total life. They were very interesting to fly. Not as bad as the 330 though

USFS uses these for smokejumpers. Slow, but effective platform to jump from.

Shorts Aircraft: for when it absolutely has to get there. Eventually.

It's flying, or better it's afloat! The arodynamic limits of this are best describet by the old saying "one can get a barndoor flying, it's only a matter of power".
Well the power behind here is rather limited, deminishing the aircrafts agility yet more.
Good friend of mine flew the SD3-60, many years ago and wasw never happy but concerned.
