A very close friend of mine (now 94 years old) trained in the USA and Canada with the RAF and ended the war flying Catalina's in the Middle East. I hope to get hold of his Flight Log and write about his training and flying.

Sounds interesting, some years back I bought a (print) drawing of a Catalina that had been signed by a number of people. Research showed that many, if not all, had been crew on Catalinas during the war.

I used to work with an old chap called Tony Cass who flew them in the war. He didn't have a very good war and hardly ever spoke about it.

We saw a Catalina on Sunday at the Weston S Mare air day, lovely old plane and such a slow beast too.
