The wingspan of the Cat is impressive, it covers the entire ramp. And while it is a relatively small airplane according to modern standards, it still dwarves the Cessna. This was taken from the 1920's Amsterdam control tower which was rebuilt here at Lelystad.

An old WWII Catalina pilot told me how he'd set the throttles to cruise....trimmed her out....and flew long boring patrols like a great soaring seabird. These things stayed aloft for hours on end.
