Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina: Almost Olympic.

 Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina: Almost Olympic.

This magnetic survey PBY (Juliet Juliet Golf, CF-JJG) was operated by Kenting Earth Sciences Ltd of Otawa. It gained in middle of the 1970s thisbizarre layout: the coils on the nose are transmitters and barely visible in the tail stinger is the receiver. To complete the equipment some tracking cameras were installed in the belly. Summing up, an advanced survey system matted with a rugged airframe that rendered a very efficient service.

I can’t say that I dislike it.
