Sydney Flying Boats

20130707-183206.jpg
Catalina Restaurant, Rose Bay, Australia provides exceptional food, wine and service, a fantastic backdrop from which to view modern day seaplanes coming in and out of the harbour. It is the perfect spot to imagine the splendour of first class travel by flying boat from Sydney to Singapore in the late 1930’s. The Catalina was an American and Canadian flying boat built in the 1930’s and 40’s.

  1. Ah now I love the old planes. I saw the Catalina fly once.. and have seen her at Duxford too. An ugly duckling on the ground and sheer beauty in the air πŸ™‚
