Here is the 'Karel Doorman' registered as PH-PBY, looking splendid in the summer sunshine at the 2006 Duxford Airshow. I managed to shoot these images from a flightline walk but if you go to her base in Holland you can actually purchase a flight in her - and here's the best bit; it includes a water take-off and landing!! I can't wait and when I do you will be the first to see it!! Click here to go to their web site and learn more about the preservation of this magnificent example. My grateful thanks goes to the whole team keeping this flying boat legend in such good flying order and accessibility to the enthusiast.
