There is a Piaggio Royal Gull at the Vintage Flying Museum in Fort Worth, Texas that is slowly being restored to fly. We are still looking for hubs and some other little things.

Flew on many occasions with my father on P136 LI and subsequently in P 136 L2 owned by the East Pakistan Government. My father flew these aircrafts over few thousand hours all over East Pakistan /Bangladesh with extensive operation on water.
It did not quite have the performance of G44 A widgeon with GO 480 engines.

Approx 3 years ago, saw a P-136, canadian registered being repaired at Norland Air Services, monck Rd, Norland< Ontarioi.
Went back a few days later with camera and plane was gone--maybe someone at air service could give u name of owner or whereabouts of plane.

Go to the web site www.p-136.com and see a beautiful example of one that is still flying today.

to Lukluk.............
The P.136 in the picture is the earlier P.136F model which preceeded the squared-off fin 136L's.
