Wig Bay

Any photos, plans, drawings, directions, helpful hints on visting places where flying boats have been operated from historically, or are being operated from today. I am always interested in receiving 'Then & Now' type photographs to assist current day visitors to these place. I'm trying to record the best places to visit before they disappear for ever.

I'll post this here as well - perhaps the topic above more properly belongs here?

Just found a couple of images of Wig that may be of interest.

lots of boats - all seem to be missing a rather important bit!

It's realy amazing where good material shows up these days.

Cheers

Having seen these photos before and as I live in the village that you can just see in the picture from high altitude, I asked the question of one of the locals who can remember those times and apparently the tails were all removed when the planes were in storage to stop the wind whipping them around.
