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.
