Save the Catalina! PH-PBY

Scramble has received a distress signal from the Stichting Exploitatie Catalina (SEC), the operator of Consolidated Catalina PH-PBY. Dark clouds are gathering over this amphibian, the oldest flying Catalina in the world. Current financial problems could well mean the end of Catalina flying in the Netherlands and possible sale of the aircraft. With this article, written by our Warbirds editor, we will try to convince you to save her!

Aviation Day 2017

On 18 November we hosted another successful Aviation Day, with the Air Fete and NSK. GRAS was in charge of the latter and it proved to be a very challenging edition! In the end EWAS was the deserved winner and they have the honour and pleasure of organising next year’s edition. Worldhotel Wings was a very good location, and we thank them for their hospitality!

BARG DVD 3 (1989 - 1994) 

This is the second of a series of four DVDs planned to be produced on a 6-monthly basis over a 2-year period, which started in the summer of 2016.

Between 1958 and 2000 the British Aviation Reasearch Group (as it became known after a total of four name changes) produced approximately 29,000 pages of of primarily military aviation data and photographs in BARG's magazines and many other books and monographs. Although the publications side of BARG ceased in 2000 the then BARG Committee has remained in existence to oversee the assets and the good name of the Group. Although BARG has been enthusiastic over the last six years, it is only within the last nine months that an opportunity has arisen to digitise over four DVDs the entire output of BARG in its current and former incarnations. All this was made possible with the help of the Dutch Aviation Society.


Each DVD contains around 7,000 pages of indexed and digitally searchable data, photographs and memorabilia. The DVD also contains search instructions. The most challenging, and complex, is DVD 1 (1957-1981) containing different sizes of newsletters and magazines of varying quality, printing methods and typefaces, ranging from stencils to those produced with the now obsolete inked-fabric ribbon and electric "Golfball" typewriter. DVD 1 will be the third DVD produced.Prices: Subscribers Netherlands €22.50, subscribers all other countries €29.25 (all prices inclusive of P&P),non-subscribers pay €5.00 extra.
