The Republic RC/3 Seabee is an iconic seaplane

The lot is one of several such planes employed during the shoot, although a miniature was used for the scene in which the chopper explodes.

No estimate is available, but other Seabees from the same era (albeit without the movie pedigree) sell for six figure sums.  

It auctions at Whittons in Devon on July 4

A replica Golden Gun featuring a signature from Roger Moore will auction at Bonhams later this month.
