About this site...

Over many years, the past employee's, passengers and friends of Antilles Air Boats have told stories and have shared photos of that special time in history.

We hope that this website will give everyone an opportunity to continue to share their stories, photos and comments.

We will share our collection of specific material on aircraft Antilles Air Boats used over the years as well as the many professionals that assisted its passengers to get from island to island.

N7777V operated at Antilles Air Boats from 1967 to 1978. Most of the new photos finding their way to the website have been of N7777V.  I will continue to look for photos that tell the AAB story.

From manufacturer to museum.

VS-44 Excambian had a very interesting history. See new postings.
