I recently went down to Albany for a family holiday. While I was down there I dropped into Whale world and asked the same question every aviation geek ask. Where is the Catalina???? Well you get to talk to the grumpy Wayne..... He did say that it and the Cessna 337 has been sold and is awaiting transport. At this point in time A24-46 is in storage in the shed located in the animal park. I was told that if I was to arrange several aviation geeks/historians and gave them plenty of notice that they would open the shed and allow us/anyone to take photos and have a gander. As for the remainder of the aviation artifacts there is none down there. (Anyone keen for a trip????)

On a side note The Anzac centre was not too bad, and the shop had replica Sopwith propellers for sale. (On sale only for $1595.00) If anyone wants to see a pic, I can put one on the ADF facebook group.

How long as the Catalina been in storage awaiting transport? Do you know who has purchased it and where it will be going?

It's too far for me to travel but if you get any photos of the Catalina please do share them!

I have no idea who has purchased the aircraft, all I am aware of is that the person is on the east coast of Australia. As for photos, if I get a chance I will be sharing them.

I was in contact with the owner in the past when I was chasing parts for A24-88 at Moorabbin, the owner isnt on the East Coast, and has a long term static display incorporated into a hospitality outcome planned.

I assume he is still the owner and that those plans havent changed.
