Catalina, the flying boat

PAYANIGA - Catalina, the flying boat

More than the display of Vulcans and F16s at the Luechars airshow, what interested me more was the slowest of all the planes, Catalina. Used widely during World War 2, Consolidated PBY Catalina is a flying boat – capable of land/take off both on land and water. Here are couple of photos of Catalina which I captured during the airshow.

And it took me a while to realise of all the flights, why the slowest one got me interested – it reminded me of the animated series Talespin 🙂

      Thanks for the visit and comment Janet. The era of cartoons like Tailspin is gone. Rare to see those kind of cartoons now a days.
