Plane Sailing Catalina at Duxford Video

By 10th February 2011June 14th, 2015Press & Video

Plane Sailing’s Catalina PBY-5A, based at Duxford in the United Kingdom, is among the most impressive World War II aircraft still flying in Europe today.

Thanks to its size, it has a presence which few planes can match, and combines this with an impressive and surprisingly tight routine. its amphibious nature allows it to be presented in different configurations, which is another rare feature which airshow audiences always appreciate.

The aircraft is also an interesting static exhibit, which the public can also admire from the inside.

More information about the aircraft and airshow bookings are available at
