A24-60 PBY-5 Catalina posted a topic in Free Sky Tools (X-Plane)Does anyone know if anyone has any repaints for a plane my grandfather flew in WW2 in Queensland Australia?? The details of the plane are............. Catalina PBY-5 Water Boat Australian Airforce registralion/serial #A24-60 WW2 He had a crash in Cairns Harbour on the 22nd of July 1943 where he lost his port side airscrew and caused a sharp turn portside and colided with an unlit beacon at night during take-off. I am hoping to recreate this incident in simulator but am only a few hours into this new hobby. Any assistance is appreciated. Photos of the crashed plane are attached. Regards Jason FYI- I have a copy of the crash report from RAAF for this incident attached now.
