G-PBYA is enjoying a busy season but is off on its holidays in July - see various links below. My video in one of the links shows G-PBYA landing on Lake Wolfgang in Austria and not on the sea as captioned.

... and it all ended safely yesterday with the intrepid students being deposited at Gamston/Retford Airport before the Catalina flew on to its Duxford base ready for some intensive maintenance and its next display booking (in Northern Ireland) this coming weekend!!
