Unnecessarly loss of an old bird

Postby gmarshall » Sat Jul 04, 2015 5:24 pm

So a Catalina was being used in the filming of a Nic Cage movie. It had been 'restored' (was apparently flyable and working as a tanker before being restored) to it's WWII appearance for the movie. During filming, it started taking on water and was beached, with the nose mostly underwater.

A salvage company tried to retrieve it, hoisting it onto a barge. They apparently should have let the water out of the hull as they lifted it, because they turned it into a crumpled mess.

Same plane from movie Always, and so much history. We could have used it this summer.
Shame on the them for letting this happen.
