    Exclamation How about another Close Up?

    This looks a bit scary coming straight at you.
    Hope the photographic plane was way faster.

    Never heard of telephoto lenses then Barry?
    Lovely photo though!

    Wow, great shot. Never though about how large the gunner's bubbles were.

    A very dynamic photograph, Barry! You can imagine being a member of a U-Boot crew seeing the Catalina swooping down on an attack run.

    For some reason, I had never thought this plane looked that menacing - this picture certainly changes that idea! Very cool take on the PBY - David's remark about the hapless U-Boot crew is certainly well-taken...

    All the best,

    Ok not as cool but here is the photo I have of the PBY at the MAM. I remember having a model of this when I was a kid.

    Looks just as good from that viewpoint but not quite so predatory.
