Happy 75th Birthday. We do not know the exact date of our Catalina's first flight but we do know the earliest date in its records. 75 years ago today it was accepted on charge by the Royal Canadian Air Force's Western Air Command prior to allocation to 9 (BR) Squadron. Who would have thought back then that she would still be airworthy and thrilling air show crowds all these year later! So, happy birthday Miss Pick Up, and lets look forward to many more years flying!
