I am fairly sure I saw this worthy bird a year ago last summer in the Glenn H. Curtiss Aviation Museum in Hammondsport, NY., and probably have a photograph of it in my photo file.

Is this another picture of the same aircraft? i51.tinypic.com/24zw203.jpg

It appears to be a Kauter flying boat, powered by either a Curtiss CD-12 400 hp or a D-12 435 hp. It has 4 ailerons and parallel wing struts, not N struts like the Sperry. It also has two stabilizers and elevators, with parallel struts in between them, the top one is barely visible above the middle wing. There is a good 3/4 rear photo in my book, "Triplanes, A Pictorial History of the World's Triplanes and Multiplanes", by Peter M. Bowers and Ernest R. McDowell, page 134.

Not a Sperry. Perhaps a custom Curtiss, like the Judson or FL? Curtiss built several built-to-order flying boats during WWI.

Looks like the Curtiss-Judson to me.

It looks like a Sperry Land and Sea Triplane.
