This Catalina, painted as A24-30, is actually a composite airframe, with the fuselage coming from RAAF A24-38 cn 1097. It is located at Lake Boga Museum, now finally is encased out of the elements sustaining its preservation. The museum is a must see on route, it is very informative and has many exhibits associated with the former maintenance base. Lake Boga was the flying boat base in Australia during the second world war. Many different platforms were maintained here away from enemy range. Other aircraft maintained at Lake Boga were the likes of Dornier Do 24, OS2U Kingfisher, Short Sunderland, Supermarine Walrus and Martin Mariner.
