RNZAF Lauthala Bay, Fiji

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.

Bula,
Thanks Dallas, for your paragraph, I am sure the Beach House resort will be pleased to get this info, I just wondered if there is likely to be any photos of the beach anywhere.(Prob" a long shot)
Vanaka,

A friend has just visited Fiji, and called in at Saweni Beach for us.

A general view of the beach as it is now, low tide of course!

There is still areas of hard-stand concrete visible, but little else of note for flying boat enthusiast to look at.
You would need to know.
