N5593V (cn 1759) On the spring of 1960, Thomas Kendall, his family, and a photographer from Life magazine set off on a round the world pleasure trip in this Catalina. On 22nd March they touched down in the Gulf of Aqaba. The following day they were attacked with automatic gun fire from a headland nearby. by local people who had mistaken them for Israeli commandos. Mr Kendall and his secratary were injured and 4,000 litres of fuel poured onto the sand. After interogation in Jeddah they were all released. (Previously 48397)
