Flying the PBY-5A Catalina

The day after the Texel airshow, I had to drive past Lelystad airport again on my way home, with a stopover at said airport. Earlier that week, I booked another flight, this time with a Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina from 1941!

The foundation does scenic flights with this beautiful aircraft, and if the weather is good enough, they go out to the Ijsselmeer to do splash & go’s. A splash and go is basically the same as a normal touch & go – but on water. A unique experience and having wanted to do this for a year or so, I decided now was the time.
