In her new livery based on the Catalina flown by John Cruickshank VC of 210 Coastal Command Squadron. On 17th July 1944, Cruickshank was severely injured when a shell, fired from a German U-Boat, exploded inside his Catalina. He bravely continued flying and eventually sunk U-347 with six depth charges. He struggled back to base where he was found to have sustained 72 seperate injuries. Notice the U-Boat in the Killer Cat's claws! Restoration by Super Catalina Restoration.
