Return of the Catalina – Documentary Screening

January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am

In 1942, Singapore fell to the Japanese and with it the vital air route that delivered top secret communications between Britain and Australia. A group of aviators from Australia re-established the route flying unarmed PBY Catalina flying boats for up to 32 hours across enemy territory. In order to recognise these unsung heroes, a museum in Outback Australia devised an ambitious plan—to restore a seventy year old Catalina flying boat and fly 18,000km across the world, from Spain to Longreach. Join us on this journey of hardship and perseverance, in memory of a few brave men forgotten to history.
