Been a bit of a Warbirds and Classics fan for many years, some of those I have bumped into.

There is an ex south American based Catalina being restored at the old RAAF
base at Rathmines on the east coast of Australia, these pic's from my first visit.
Image

Image

In 1942 the Japanese attacked a number of moored flying boats carrying evacuess
from Java, the remains of a RAF Catalina at Roebuck Bay, Western Australia .
Image

A boat that flies with the remains of a flying boat.
Image

Photo taken not long after the time of the raid, burning Catalinas, Dorniers and
Empire Class boats on Roebuck Bay with the town of Broome in the back ground.
Image

Maintaining the feline theme the Catalina displayed at the Aviation museum at
Bull Creek, Perth, Western Australia.
Image

Bull Creeks Lancaster nose art.
Image

Percival Proctor.
Image

Australian made CAC Wirraway.
Image

Another local job, Wackett trainer.
Image

One of my personal favourites the ex RAAF Spitfire MkV trop housed at the South
Australian Aviation museum.
Image

Very authentic static restoration has every correct part as per a wartime machine,
only missing the parachute flare set up, if anyone knows where one is please
contact me.
Image

Has a zero timed, apart from factory run, engine fitted.
Image

As found in the 1970s.
Image

The museum is also restoring a Fairy Battle recovered from the sea.
Image

Another South Australian static restoration.
Image

Image

More soon............

These are all over a period of twenty plus years, some copies off slides hence the poor quality.

Thanks for sharing! Quite a few airframes I haven't seen photos of before. Your home strip looks very scenic.
