Two unique aircraft, a single-engine Seabee and a twin engine Twinbee landed at West Michigan Regional Airport to fuel up and get help with mechanical issues. “This was a very productive stop,” said Bob Woodberry, owner of the two aircraft. “Tulip City Air Service’s mechanical department was very helpful in solving the problem.” Woodberry, along with his son and friends, were on their way to the 2015 Oshkosh Air Show.
Bob explained that in 1946-1947, 1,060 commercial/private Seabees were made with approx. 200-300 still flying today. Only 29 Twinbee aircraft (two engines) were produced with around 8-9 left in the world.
