The Grumman G-73 Mallard is a medium, twin engine Amphibious aircraft. Manufactured from 1946 to 1951, production ended when Grumman's larger Albatross SA-16 was introduced. Many have been modified by replacing the original Pratt & Whitney Wasp radial engines with modern Turboprops. Retaining many of the features of the smaller aircraft, such as twin radials, high wings with underwing floats, retractable gear and a large straight tail, the company built 59 Mallards between 1946 and 1951. Unlike the smaller aircraft, the Mallard featured Tricycle gear, a stressed skin, two step hull and wingtip fuel tanks.
