You know Chris, I think some of the local yacht owners would not have been too happy!  :rolleyes:





Spectators, I ask you!  :wacko:

I think he's just lining up for the bomb run in that pic actually.  ;D

They planned to have a Catalina at the Seawings 2000 event in the summer of 2000, and it was at Fairford the previous weekend, and it was open for visitors! I climbed aboard and was amazed how big it was inside, very wide indeed. Sadly the very next day it crashed on landing in Southampton Water, killing the Mayor of Southampton amongst others.  :-\

I'm not sure if the one in your pic is the same aircraft Jim, I know they recovered and re-built it, but I don't know the reggies.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

You know Todd, I think that's what Canada will end up with, F-18E's & F's  (3rd world stuff)
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike
