This seems to me such an improbable picture – a wartime flying boat against a backdrop of Cotswold park-land. It was taken at the Badminton fly-in probably in 1986 on a low approach over the Badminton horse trials course. The Catalina was owned by Plane Sailing of Duxford and sponsored at the time by the airline Dan Air. It crashed in Southampton Water in 1998 with the loss of two lives, but was apparently subsequently rebuilt. (Pentax 35mm; colour print film; Canon 8800F scanner)
