Rathmines Catalina: 'Our Girl'


‘OUR GIRL’ – PBY-5A CATALINA

'Our Girl' was purchased from Puerto Rico in 2012 and then shipped to Australia in five sections. Restoration of the Catalina is progressing with an enthusiastic team of dedicated volunteers.

Rathmines Catalina Association partners with LMCC and other organisations to support the establishment of an interpretive community centre at the site of the former Rathmines RAAF Base. The Catalina known as 'Our Girl' will be the centrepiece of this facility.
