The Fleetwings F4 Sea Bird was an amphibious utility aircraft designed in 1934-5 by James C. Reddig for the design company Fleetwings Inc. It was unusual because the engine was configured well above the fuselage on a wire framed scaffolding that supported the nacelle. Only six of these planes were built though they flew very well. The Pilot and passengers were in an enclosed unpressurized cabin. Also, this was one of the first aircraft to use spot welded stainless steel.
