From Fly RC Magazine: Perhaps the best-known Widgeon was a license-built French variant officially known as a SCAN-30. Constructed in 1967, N4453 sports a pair of Lycoming R-680 radial engines and was the magic carpet that carried Mr. Roarke’s guests to Fantasy Island for over six years on the hit television series of the same name. Like many others of my generation, Fantasy Island was my introduction to this unique aircraft, and I waited each week for the few fleeting glimpses offered at the start of each show.
