VH-AFD  Consolidated 28-5MA  Catalina      (c/n  78)


                         Unfortunately I do not have a photograph of this aircraft.  In fact, I doubt very much if one was
                         ever taken.  The first VH-AFD was one of eighteen Catalinas delievered to QANTAS in 1941
                         and immediately given RAAF serial numbers.    In this case, A24-3. 
                         For more interesting information on this series of 'boats I can recommend the following sites:



                         The latter is particularly fascinating and gives us an idea of what might have become of the first VH-AFD.
