80 Years, a Tribute to the PBY Catalina

Postby DavidLegg » Wed May 23, 2018 1:51 pm

Hans Wiesman's excellent photo book is now available - see here http://www.seattlebookcompany.com/80-ye ... -catalina/ Reviews seem very positive.

Can I suggest that any UK-based members of this forum considering purchasing it should contact me at pby5@btinternet.com first. I have a supply for sale and Hans has agreed a generous donation on each sale towards the upkeep of Plane Sailing's airworthy, Duxford-based G-PBYA of which he is a keen supporter.

I liked it, I can't vouch for the accuracy of all the info, but overall the photos, binding and presentation in general are very well done.
(In the interests of fair reporting, I was a contributor and got a free copy, but that didn't sway my opinion one bit, it's a very nice book)
