    Thanks for clicking......................if your tall enough you'll hit that flying boat........................Mahon's Bar to be exact. Their Guinness is silky smooth and bar menu is pure heaven. Thanks for looking :D

    Nice model though and looks a large scale.

    Have seen it flying , at St. Angelo several years ago , it has some parts in it made from fabric of NJ175 of 422Squadron which crashed near Belleek on 12/8/44. :)

    It is quite a big bird.

    You are a tease James as I could not help “clicking” when I read your opening post. I love the Catalina one of my favourite world war two aircraft. I have had a few pints of the black stuff at Mahon's Bar and I agree about the menu and I was “tall enough to hit that flying boat”.

    The one which was recently "Discovered" in Lough Erne was actually well known and recorded.
    All that excitement on local news - Pity they had not made a few simple enquiries first.

    There are a number of local Historians who have an extensive knowledge of the various locations and crash sites.
