Mission accomplished !

The IWM Duxford based Catalina G-PBYA operated by Plane Sailing Air Displays Ltd returned safely to Duxford yesterday afternoon. The Catalina had spent 5 days on a Circuit of Britain to commemorate 100 years since the attempt by Harry Hawker and Harry Kauper in a Sopwith Waterplane. Although the flight has been successfully completed there is still a lot to do.  The website will be updated with information and photos of the flight over the coming weeks.  There are hundreds of emails, posts and comments to be responded to and that is on the “to do” list. For now, a big thank you to all who have been involved. You have contributed to a truly memorable experience!Image

  1. It would have been great if you had called into the Isle of man as well , the aircraft certainly looks amazing well done for keeping it flying

    • Yes Gary and it was considered in the early days of planning when Avgas from Shell was being considered. Alas, it was not logistically possible but the Catalina was planning on landing there today on its way to Northern island.
