PBY: The Catalina Flying Boat

PBY: The Catalina Flying Boat - Roscoe R. Creed I have a soft spot for the Catalina. In my optics it's one of the most beautiful aircraft ever build, the operational history of it is impressive, and - finally - my old English teacher in primary did his military service in Greenland. And sometimes he had the opportunity to fly with the RDAF PBY's. He was a vivid storyteller and could show us youngsters pictures to show that he was not telling us sea stories. (I am sure he did sometimes, but it was always very entertaining ;-)
