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‚Äîto¬†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.
