The first civilian Catalina, NC777 Guba (I), seen at North Beach, NY after flying non-stop from San Diego in 17 hours. The flying boat had been purchased by the American Museum of Natural History for use by naturalist Richard Archbold, but was sold to the USSR in August 1937 to participate in the search for URSS-N209 of Sigizmund Levanevsky. Archbold got another NC777 Guba, c/n C-3. Photo from: Life

Registered on 14th January 1960, ex N94574 to T.D. Keegan who reportedly purchased the aircraft to secure a survey contract in the North Sea. Seen still wearing the logo of one of its previous owners, World Wide Aviation Services. The contract was not secured and G-APZA was scrapped at Southend in November 1960 (or June 1961?) having not gained a certificate of airworthiness. Photographer not known.

G-PBYA had a small undercarriage issue at the air show and consequently did not land on as anticipated but diverted back to Duxford. According to the crew, after several cycles the starboard undercarriage unstuck and a safe landing was made at its home base.

Los Angeles industrialist Thomas W Kendall bought 13 Catalinas for conversion into air yachts similar to N69043. In 1960, Kendall set out from London in N5593V with his own family and a photographer on board. After seeing the pyramids, they alighted off the Saudi coast on 22 March to relax on the beach, but the next morning, they were attacked and taken prisoner by a group of armed Bedouins who took them for Israeli commandos. The bullet-riddled remains of the Catalina are still present on the beach - see other photo. Photo by: David Lees / Life

That the concept of touring the world in a flying yacht might not be understood everywhere was highlighted on 23 March 1960 when the American Kendall family came under attack by armed tribesmen on this beach near the Gulf of Aqaba. The wreck can now be inspected through Google Street View. Unfortunately the wing pylon has meanwhile collapsed and the tail broken off. This airframe also starred in a 1959 movie, SOS Pacific.

Glenn Odekirk, on the left, revived the pre-war 'air yacht' concept with this luxuriously converted 'Landseaire' Catalina, ex BuNo 34045. Loomis Dean did a photo shoot for an advertorial in Life. The model in polka dot bikini sunbathes on top of one of the R-1830 Twin Wasps in some of the pictures. A dinghy was carried under the wing. Other amenities included a kitchen, a bar and a shower but everything must have been pretty cramped. N69043 was sold to a wealthy Brazilian and crashed at Picinguaba, Sao Paulo on 5 July 1953.

Glenn Odekirk, on the left, revived the pre-war 'air yacht' concept with this luxuriously converted 'Landseaire' Catalina, ex BuNo 34045. Loomis Dean did a photo shoot for an advertorial in Life. The model in polka dot bikini sunbathes on top of one of the R-1830 Twin Wasps in some of the pictures. A dinghy was carried under the wing. Other amenities included a kitchen, a bar and a shower but everything must have been pretty cramped. N69043 was sold to a wealthy Brazilian and crashed at Picinguaba, Sao Paulo on 5 July 1953.
