"DebtMan" I think you maybe a little off centre with regards to your statement "the first seaplane of the world with jet motor". The Saunders Roe A1 flew for the first time on the 16th July 1947.

The Be-10 was the first seaplane of the world with jet motor.Was designed as scout plane and attacker,but due to an accident caused by negligence,the prototypewas destroyed and the project was abandoned

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
