HARS Catalina appears at Newcastle on Australia Day

At 1pm on Sunday 26th January the HARS PBY6A Catalina “Felix” conducted two flypasts of the Australia Day celebrations at Newcastle Harbour, flying down the harbor in front of a large crowd of spectators.  The Maritime Festival Event Coordinator Eric Townsend said that the Catalina did not touch the water as the aeroplane is just too precious.
