Catalina Memorial, Western Australia.
- Hello members.
Received the following message from Andy Wright.
He is not a PBY member, so any reply will not reach him.
Andy spoke to the president of the Catalina Club,
a Mr Robins who put him onto Ivan Pearce after a run down
on what's hapening. The aircraft is at Perth airport with
the fuse shrinkwrapped and everything else in seatainers.
Aircraft is visible over the fence in the security zone
which is, unfortunately, closed on the weekend. However,
after more info, Ivan told me to ring Ted Carraseck who has
the keys for the seatainers and can get me in.
The PBY building is yet to be started although it has been
designed. Construction is due to commence in April, a public
fundraising drive will be started up to pay for the building.
The gentlemen I spoke to were brilliant and rather amusing.
I will be meeting Mr Carraseck tomorrow to arrange a visit
to the Cat for next Friday. Mr Robins flew Cats in the SWPA
and Ivan flew them out of Crawley, including the extreme long
distance flights to Ceylon. Have a corker, Andy.
