In the late 30s and 40s, any aviator would instantly know what you were talking about if you mentioned a Goose. It was an important, groundbreaking plane in its day and was often written up in aviation and popular mechanical journals. They could also be seen flying all over, particularly in cities that had airports on the waterfront that catered to amphibious planes or flying boats such as the Clipper.

Northrop Grumman Corporation, based in Los Angeles, is a leading designer, systems integrator and manufacturer of bomber, fighter and surveillance aircraft as well as commercial and military aerostructures, precision weapons, electronic countermeasures and information systems.
