    Only three flying Ducks?
    I thought there were more than that.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    I thought so too J Boyle but, now that I stop to consider it, those owned by Weeks, Friedkin, and Greenhill are the only three I can come up with. Any others?

    There are actually four flyers - in addition to Weeks, Friedkin and the Greenhill (now Mid America Flight Museum) examples, the Erickson Aircraft Collection also owns/operates J2F-6 (N3960C) - the EAC example might actually be the most flown, recently, of all of them.

    N8563F was also at least briefly a flyer in Anchorage, Alaska, when owned by the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum (a 20 year restoration, which first flew in 2007, but had some damage following a landing in 2008 (not sure if it ever flew after that)). It has since been sold to "Skyfire Corp" (which I understand to be David Arnold) and its airworthiness certificate has expired.
