To remember the Loch Ness ‘adventure’ of last Autumn/Winter, a Photobook, ‘Catalina Down – Loch Ness Rescue’ has been produced as a great homage and memento of the rescue operation.

This Photobook production has been funded jointly by Plane Sailing Air Displays Limited and The Catalina Society. The Catalina Society is the supporters club for the Catalina – Miss Pick Up and exists to fully support, in all respects, the Catalina aircraft which is owned by Catalina Aircraft Limited (CAL) and operated by Plane Sailing Air Displays Limited (PSADL).

We are selling copies of this photobook from our Shop on this site to raise ongoing funds. In the shop we are also selling new Loch Ness Adventure themed merchandise, commissioned to help raise funds for our next project. If you would like to order any of these and other items then please do so, but to help with our logistics during this restricted period, we do ask you to order your Photobook(s) as a separate single item order. This is because the books are distributed from a different location to our main storage facility.
