Catalina Pacific Airlines    Douglas DC-3  N18101           (c/n  1959)


                                           An even smaller outfit was Catalina Pacific Airlines which had this, and one other DC-3.  It flew
                                           two morning trips and two evening trips from Burbank to Catalina.  One of the returning evening
                                           schedules stopped in Torrance (where this image was taken in 1959).  I suspect the line only ran
                                           for one or two seasons.  This old bird was originally delivered to Western Air Express as a Douglas
                                           DST-A207 and is the example to I use to illustrate that airline's pre-war DC-3.    It was around
                                           for many years after its service with Catalina Pacific but whether it is still active or not I don't know.
