The UK based Catalina has been busy for the past week or so on a filming project for US and UK TV projects. Sadly, its not been without some issues - fortunately nothing that cannot be fixed.

Miss Pick Up is one of the world's only airworthy Catalina flying boats and is currently operated by Plane Sailing based in Duxford, Cambridge. We are a small team of dedicated pilots and volunteers who do it for the love of preserving this wonderful WWII flying boat. You can read more about our aircraft and how we keep her flying for all to see on our website here: https://www.catalina.org.uk

We dearly need to get her returned to her home in Duxford for the winter which is where your donation comes in.

As you can imagine the logistics involved are massive. In order to get the aircraft back to Duxford we need to extract her from the Loch and onto dry land as soon as possible so that the damaged engine can be replaced. Once that's completed, we then need to put her back onto the Loch so she can be flown home. Otherwise she will be at the mercy of the harsh Scottish winter on a Loch (which as we all know is home to a certain wee beastie!) rather than her usual cosy hanger in Duxford. The damage this could do to the aircraft could be irreparable.
