Scenic flight over the AMARG and Pinal Air Park
N80187 is a Cessna 172M (msn 17266431, mfr 1975)
When I asked if windows could cause a problem for photography, the reply was: "we'll open the windows"

These G-111/HU-16 Albatros seaplanes have been given a deadline: move or get scrapped!
N113FB was flown out, saved from the scrapman, in May 2018 (DETAILS) and N122FB in August 2018 (DETAILS)
N125FB (c/n 432; ex/ US Navy 141282) had been the 2nd, arriving on July 04th.
N118FB (no.4) arrived at its new home with Barron Aviation on 27Sep2018.
While headquartered at Perry,MO I think they are based at Hannibal Regional Airport, Missouri (a 40 mins drive from Perry).

I think these pictured by me are HU-16E N113FB (c/n 332); G-111 N122FB (c/n 218; ex/ USAF 51-7168); G-111 c/n 432 N125FB (ex/ US Navy 141282); G-111 c/n 452 N118FB (ex/ RCAF 9304); G-111 c/n 456 N119FB (ex/ RCAF 9308); G-111 c/n 460 N116FB (ex/ US Navy 148325); G-111 c/n 463 N112FB (ex/ US Navy 148328).
