Beautiful. Just beautiful

These were commercial taxis from KLOB(Long beach, CA) to the Avalon, Catalina harbor in the 60's. Thrilling as all heck to see the turning final to 'flop' into the harbor. KAVX is on the Western end of the island while Avalon is on the Eastern, so the harbor was a better choice.

A pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! I love it.
My Dad sold one of these to Henry Ford II—making a small bundle—after leaving VP-11 Black Cats after WWII.

My neighbor in the '80s was a flight engineer on the PBY-5A Black Cats in the South Pacific -- he told great stories of those experiences.
