    Each one had a different fate from memory. The exhib tells all.

    But I'm too young to have seen them. I only got curious and checked it out when I found out Sydney's first international airport was where I lived on Rose Bay a few years ago.

    Bring back the flying boats. This might be the answer to Sydney’s second airport problem.

    and the passenger terminal building is still there, it now houses the restaurant "Catalina".

    A famous Australian flying boat pilot "Bull Garing" flew Sunderlands with great bravery in WW2. He found the children survivors of the "City of Benares" in the Atlantic ocean and defended their lifeboats from attack by German fighters. Imagine going up against fighters in a lumbering great seaplane! My father (9 years old at the time) was on a ship in the same convoy, but his wasn't torpedoed.

    Sea-planes still operate joy flights out of Rose Bay, I really like the De-Haviland Beavers, with their big radial engines. Its like flying in a WW2 aircraft, plus the thrill of a water take off. Not expensive and highly recommended for visitors to Sydney.
