Default China revives an old idea ... Amphibious plane

The AG600



I never really understood why development of the concept didn't continue. there were many Seaplanes / Amphibian in the 30's 40's 50's ... and they just seemed to fade away ...

I appreciate that power plants changed to Jets etc. - but Turboprops are far more efficient than the old engines used ... so why not a revival ?
