What was the float plane used by James Bond in Man With The Golden Gun?

It was a Seabee, owned by Colonel Claire and has FAA Registry # N87545. After refusing to rent it to the Bond producers he offered to fly it to the location as long as he could fly it in the movie. Which he did. The real plane was not blown up but an Art Department mock-up was destroyed in its place. Colonel Claire was apparently injured during one take of him beaching the Seabee up onto the beach.
