Golden West Airlines Grumman G-21A Goose  N93G   (c/n  1130)


                                           In 1968 Golden West Airlines took over the operation of the (by now) defunct Catalina Air Lines
                                           (formerly Avalon Air Transport).  Five Grumman G-21As passed to their asset register and the
                                           service to Avalon Harbor was maintained until about 1973 when the operation was taken over
                                           by yet another "Catalina Airlines" (no relation to Dick Probert's earlier airline of the same name).
                                           This absolutely stunning image was taken by Bob Garrard at Long Beach in July of 1970.  Despite
                                           the "Catalina" on the nose, that appendage never was part of the official corporate title.
