Catalina Flying Boat


The goal of relocating a WWII Catalina at Rathmines is a lot closer. A plane has been bought in Portugal and flown to Australia. It is now at Bankstown airport, where it will be restored to military condition.

The Catalina VH will be on display in conjunction with the Australian Air League and Aircraft Model Show in the Bankstown Airport passenger terminal over the weekend of the 9th & 10th May 2009

In exchange for a (tax deductible) donation of $20, visitors will be invited to climb aboard and sit in the pilot's seat. The Catalina Flying Memorial Ltd will also be selling copies of the excellent books by Bob Cleworth, "Cats at War" and "The Fabulous Catalina", as well as DVDs.

All donations received will help fund the work required to obtain an Australian Certificate of Airworthiness for VH-CAT. The achievement of this key milestone will mark a significant contribution to the return of the Catalina to Australian skies and seas.

The Kite Runner

by Khaled Hosseini

 I can’t believe I did not read this book sooner. I loved it and could not put it down.

An honest and unbiased reflection on a country and its struggles,

which has played a massive part in the media for countless years now. Don’t get me wrong, I am no expert in Afghanistan

and it’s society, but I found all the underlying tones and hints of a long established culture really fascinating

 and quite different to what I had heard or was led to believe. I love books that leave me feeling as though my life is more enriched

from the moment I pick them up and turn the first page. I also love a journey. This was no exception.

Khaled Hosseini is a real story teller and I had to go out straight after finishing The Kite Runner to buy his other book, A Thousand

Splendid Suns. I’m really looking forward to it and will keep you posted.  

Thank you Laura M
