through most of the movie, the twin engine amphibian. My first thought was a CL-214, but many doubts came into my mind.

BTW, this is a good, entertaining shoot-em-up-bang-bang movie with more than a few laughs along way as the good guys blow a gajillion bad guys away while getting barely a scratch themselves.

If it's the same one as the first movie it's a Grumman Albatross I think, I'd have to watch it again.

Then he must have got a new plane, first movie was pretty forgettable, maybe he destroyed the Albatross.

The fact that the CL-214 does not exsist may have had something to do with my creeping doubts. Thanks to those that so graciously corrected me.

Not my first mistake, won't be my last.
