Most Mk V Norseman aircraft were fitted with Edo 7170 floats but a number of Mk IV and US military UC 64A's were fitted with smaller floats with a curved top profile. Does anyone remeber the model/size of those floats? Most later model airplanes were equipped with 7170's but a few had the smaller ones.

I believe Birch Lake lodge flying out of Red Lake had the smaller float on their Noorduyn when they were flying. Happy to say I once saw about 20 Norsemans do the fly bye at the festival years back. Those days are gone. Even the Norseman site is down. Lots of info was there. http://www.noorduynnorseman.com/

That was the site that was run by Julie Boddy, Bob Noorduyn Jr.'s granddaughter. Julie got married and moved to England a few years ago, so I guess she no longer has the time or inclination to keep it going.

Fortunately this site is still up.
