Vancouver Archives
Boeing of Canada designed this small aluminum-hulled 4 person flying boat in 1931 and 32. The chief designer had came from Canadian Vickers and Saunders Roe and the aircraft showed little relationship to other Boeing designs. It was reported that the aircraft had excellent characteristics both in the air and on the water. Only one prototype was built and the airplane (owned by Canadian Airways) spent its life in British Columbia till 1942 when it appears to have been scrapped.
