RAAF Catalina -‘ First and furthest’
3 -15 December, 2019
Entrance Corridor Gallery
The Catalina flying boat was one of the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War, and was operated by virtually every Allied nation in anti-submarine, air-sea rescue, patrol and minelaying/bombing roles. The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) used more than 150 Catalinas between 1941 and 1945.
This exhibition of photos and objects from the Memorial collection recognises the significance of the flying boats and the crew that flew and maintained them.
