Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

The Seaplane is used by a famous film star to travel around. Neville once saw it crashing into the sea and, unaware it was a seaplane, panicked. When the mist lifted, he could see it was being kept afloat. He was then honoured with the task of towing the red and yellow seaplane to a nearby jetty.

Technical Details


The Seaplane appears to have no specific basis, but it resembles a de Havilland Canada DHC-3 Otter with a turbine engine conversion and added floats. The cabin also appears to have different window designs.


The Seaplane is painted red with chromed yellow stripes.
