Many of the planes featured in the series have real-life analogies: the SeaDuck is a Conwing L-16 Heavy Transport with Superflight 100 engines, similar to a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar; the CT-37 Pirate Fighter is based on the Gee Bee Model R Super Sportster with a second pair of wings and pontoons instead of landing gear; and Louie's midair refueling plane is analogous to the Grumman G-21 "Goose".

On some episodes, the navigator's seat in the Sea Duck has a Yoke in front of it and on some episodes it doesn't. See more »
If it's got wings I can fly it! Sometimes even if it doesn't.

Ever since I remember, I have loved airplanes and flying. I am now in college with a private pilot's license and looking to become a commercial. I could never remember why I was so obsessed with the subject until I came across my old Tail Spin tapes in my basement at home and it hit me, this was it. My parents bought every single tape they had and this was the only show I would watch as a kid. I had the theme memorized as I grew up and I can still re-cite it today. It is absolutely amazing and I plan on buying the DVD's soon! It really is great for children and adults and is absolutely timeless. I cannot get enough of this show.
