This 1945-built Widgeon was converted to Super Widgeon by McKinnon in 1958. Among other improvements, Super Widgeons have more powerful Lycoming GO-480 engines with 3-bladed props, a strengthened hull and landing gear and larger passenger windows. It is seen here undergoing restoration following a mishap in Dec 1993 on Lake Griffin near Leesburg, FL. Restoration was finished in 2009, but it almost immediately suffered another accident, when on 4 Aug 2009 it struck a log on Hewitt Lake near Talkeetna, AK. The aircraft was again recovered and repaired, and it was still flying happily by 2018.

Only two weeks before this photo was taken, on 26 May 2006, this nice Widgeon landed on a lake near Willow, AK with extended landing gear. It immediately nosed over and sustained significant damage to nose and cockpit. It was salvaged and trucked to the airstrip at Willow, AK, and it is seen here with the damage hidden under a tarpaulin and the registration taped over. Later in 2006 it was dismantled and trucked to Victoria, BC, Canada for repairs by Victoria Air Maintenance. When the repairs were completed, N141R was flown back to its owner in Alaska on 17 Feb 2009, still in Royal Navy markings.
