"Catalina Dreaming" written by Ross Ewing
      #312779 - 03/09/11 03:13 AM

Ross Ewing (Dr.) and four other New Zealanders ("Kiwis") experienced the story of a Catalina which never made it to New Zealand.
Bought in the US, flown via Los Angeles to Hawaii, continued to Tahiti but never arrived there. Close to the equator the Flying Boat ditched in the middle of the night.
Ross describes this adventure in details, with a lot of pictures.
Ross flew in Vietnam and in the New Zealand Air Force (Skyhawks), obtained a medical degree, founded the New Zealand confidential reporting system ICARUS and writes articles for the magazine "Pacific Wings".
"Catalina Dreaming" and other books written by Ross Ewing can be bought here:
