    My name is Bryan Ribbans and I'm the WebMaster and Owner of the largest Flying Boat reference website in the World - www.seawings.co.uk

    I've landed here almost by accident on a (very) lazy Sunday afternoon here in England, wet, cold, windy - best place to be is in the warm 'den' surfing and I stumbled across a thread on another forum that lead me here. Boy, you guys keep this one quiet!!

    But, what a forum, I have just had the best three hours looking at just a portion of the threads and have been fascinated by them. Some very knowledgable chaps here.

    So, I will do my best to contribute on the flying boat side of things where-ever I can and if anyone needs any help on the subject, drop me a line. I'm not an expert, but I know plenty of people who are!

    G'day Bryan. Welcome. It is a pleasure to have you on board. I've visited you site several times but have only really scratched the surface. Well done, every time I've visited has been an enjoyable read.

    Like Kyt, I do like my Sunderlands but also have a serious soft spot for Catalinas mainly because of the Black Cats of the RAAF.

    Guess I've just found.....

    the Southern end of the chain!!

    Hi Andy, many thanks.

    The thing that has totally surprised me is that until 3.0PM this afternoon, I didn't know of this forum!!

    But, I'm hopeful of adding a bit to the reference value if I can.

    I've just stuck my twopenny worth into the thread you highlight!!

    By the way, I'm going to the RAF Museum on the 31st. Any pics of the Sunderland you want? Or anything else for that matter.

    Let me know.

    Woooo..I'm only there for a day!!

    Have you seen my 'other' website at www.detailpics.net ??

    It is my site for all my walk-rounds, aircraft, armour, racing cars, ships etc etc

    See if there is anything there that takes your fancy.

    In the meantime, if you go to the RAF Museum site and pick a couple that interest you, I'll do them for you!

    How's that?

    I'll pretty much be happy with anything that takes your fancy, Bryan. I was there in 1989 so a lot will be different!
