Hi guys

My first post here and since I'm a flying boat lover but not an expert I thought I'd start with something easy. The HARS Catalina attended the Temora Aviation Museum's first flying weekend for 2010 at the end of January. It was the first time I had seen a Catalina fly (I went to the UK in 1999 but the Plane Sailing Cat had her accident earlier in the year, IIRC) and it really had an impact on me the way she rumbled around the airfield. Really hit home how long and slow the RAAF's Black Cat mining ops were. Anyway, here's some average pics of her in her new paint job. HARS have a turret for her but all in good time. ;)

Thanks, dogsbody, wish I had more pics but there might be more of a chance to see a flying Cat in Australia once Qantas gets their example's engine problem sorted.
