CATALINA

We'll be hoping that the weather doesn't give the Catalina the possibility of showing off it's best party trick; it's a flying boat. A very large flying boat which played a vital role throughout WWII. Catalina's are still in service fulfilling specialist roles today (they're excellent water bombers for a start). This one, Miss Pick Up, is preserved as a flying tribute in her original USAF colours. She's resident at Duxford most of the year, but will spend the weekend at Old Buckenham, landing (wind permitting) and will be placed on display so that you can get close to a truly imposing piece of history. When you're here it won't be difficult to find her; look for the only two storey tall boat at the end of the main display area.
