Ryan STM-S2 on floats with Dutch East Indies insignia over South Bay, San Diego



  1. Fabulous photo!
    I did not know there was such a ship.

  2. Here's another nice Ryan, Photo Number 3: http://www.historicaircraftrestorationmuseum.org/museumhangar3.html
    Beautiful Easter egg paint!
    This one has a non-standard engine conversion, and if I remember the airplane's display placard correctly it said the objective was more speed, but the engine was significantly heavier than the standard engines, and that not only raised the stall / landing speed, but also radically narrowed the useful-speed range.
