The Catalina Society

The Catalina Society is the supporters club for the PBY5A Catalina!Our aim is to keep this beautiful old flying boat airworthy for many years to come. By forming the society, we have brought together people who share our aim. But more importantly, you will be joining a dedicated group of enthusiasts who can proudly associate themselves with their aircraft.

Off to Munich - on Friday, Miss Pick Up departs Duxford for the Munich Airport 25th Birthday Open Days being held on Saturday and Sunday. Our great team led by pilots Rod Brooking and Steve Porter with Crew Chief Nick Hickton will be on hand to conduct walk-through guided tours and sell merchandise. The return to our Duxford base will be around 15:00 hrs on Monday.

Hot on the heels of our first show of the season comes our second - at Westport Quay in Ireland on Sunday 14th May. We will be operating out of Knock Airport, arriving there on Saturday. On this occasion, the coastal nature of the show means that we will not be able to offer walk-throughs or sell merchandise from our stall. However, do take a look at our website https://www.catalina.org.uk/ and the range of goodies available by post on the 'Shop' tab.

Shareholder charter to Le Touquet:

A couple of our shareholders - Ian Stewart and Humphrey Truswell - chartered Miss Pick Up for a visit to France last Saturday. She was the oldest, biggest and best looking lady on the tarmac!
