the front cockpit while a passenger/gunner would sit in
the rear. There

Ducks have been
used is several movies and TV shows such as “Ba Ba Black
Sheep” and Murphys War.
This paint scheme, the “Candy Clipper”,
was from a Duck that had been sunk early on in the battle
for the Philippines during World War II.
After the aircraft was salvaged, and brought back
to flying condition, it brought badly needed supplies
in, including medical supplies and candy for the troops
during the last siege for the islands.
The “Candy Clipper” was the last aircraft to leave
the Philippines before the Japanese took over the islands
