Catalina Seaplanes  Grumman G-21A Goose  N12CS    (c/n  1085)


                                           Catalina Seaplanes took over the Catalina Channel Airlines operation in 1966.  It was owned by
                                           Fred Rosen and Charlie Steelwell, who ran the "Big White Steamer" steamship which ran between
                                           Long Beach and Catalina.   It wasn't particularly big (about the size of the Manly Ferry, for you
                                           Sydneysiders), but it certainly was white!   Anyway, after building a new ramp at Cabrillo Mole for
                                           the Grummans, it proved to be too dangerous to use and the company reverted to the old Pebbly
                                           Beach ramp previously used by Catalina Channel.  Catalina Seaplanes folded in 1972.
