The two twin-engine flying boats are Grumman SA-16A Albatross search aircraft. These were the successors to the famed PBY Catalina. The single engine aircraft between them is a Canadian built de Havilland L-20A Beaver. This particular aircraft was destroyed in a crash 7 Dec 1970 in Burlington, Vermont.
