This is the new move to total freedom. This a non-commercial site. I will make a few T-shirts and ball-caps available in the future. But I won't be asking for any money for listings or any inquiries.
Long Live The Goose!!!!!!!!
This is a Grumman Goose database for all the known and lost Gooses.
I will try and keep up with the listings as much as I possibly can.
Since the creation of Goose Central in October 1999, the site has been visited thousands of times. Many of you have left very useful information on the message board and e-mails. My heart-filled thanks goes out to all of you Goose fans! I have tried to list all of the photos and information you have so freely given to me. I thank all who have contributed to this web site. Without your help, I would have been way behind in it's evolution. I am glad I'm not the only Goose fanatic out there. As long as the Internet exists, these memories of this great airplane will live forever!
I have had a life-long passion for the the Grumman Goose. I used to fly on the Alaska Coastal-Ellis Gooses when I was a kid living in Ketchikan Alaska in the 1950's and 1960's. The Goose in my opinion, is the most useful and sturdy of all the seaplanes and flying boats. Out of the 345 of them that were manufactured from 1937-1945, There are only about 50 or so that are still flying and in museums all over the world. I will soon have listings the with locations of Gooses & Museums
