They said this was supposed to be a green air show. Not sure how though.

Thanks for posting! I especially liked the photo of the PBY Catalina as there are very few (none?) on the airshow circuit this side of the pond.

12noon-

Thanks for posting a great set of photos. It was nice to see the bottom shot of the PBY. I actually flew that aircraft quite a bit, and now it is a piece of history.

Alan-

I had one night that it took me 23 hours and 40 minutes to get from San Francisco to Honolulu. It is NOT the SST!

My Dad trained on PBYs with the RCAF during WWII but when it came time to do actual N Atlantic anti-submarine patrol half the class was assigned to PBY's and half to non-amphibious Lockheed Hudsons so my Dad spent his patrol time in the Hudson. He credits that to part of his survival as the Hudson was a smaller target and faster which reduced its vulnerability to anti-aircraft fire. Several of his classmate were shot done while flying the PBY over the North Atlantic.

AC-

Yes, I have a few holes in the PBY in my day as well, but that comes with the territory. I managed to live through the experience and to retire some 35 years later as a Boeing 747 Captain with 37,500 hours.
