PBY Catalina (Canso in Canada)

Unread post by retiredVTT » Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:12 pm

Here's a great video on this marvelous piece of mechanical achievment..!

You gotta wonder how many downed pilots and crew where plucked from the oceans of the world by one of these throughout WW2..!

Several of these spent their final years fighting forest fires in NFLD.

Bill,
Starting this year, nitroplanes does not ship anything over 40' wingspan internationally. As I learned when trying to order a c47. they cancel your order a day after you place it.
