Thanks to Al E. from ASRCM for finding this video....the "ugly duckling" has always been a favorite of mine and for over forty years I've had the RCM plans for one rolled in a tube.

Keep in mind when viewing this video that the wingspan is a cool 100 feet. The colors in this video are spectacular.

For further details on the Canadian version, known as the "Canso" you should view the great documentation on the upper level of the Shearwater Aircraft Museum.
