Wellington Aero Club Open Day 2010 #13: The Cat - post 2 of 2

In this second post on the PBY5A Catalina, ZK-PBY, I have a few pictures of the aircraft taxiing, post flight checks, engine start and soon after takeoff.

The RNZAF operated a few 10's of Catalina's during World War 2, in air-sea rescue, patrol and shipping escort roles, although I understand that these were all flying boats rather than amphibious models such as ZK-PBY. You can get more details on the Catalina Group's website.

Enjoy the pics!
