Apol­ogy owed

The Northland Age - - Opinion -

The Catalina Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety owes the peo­ple of the Far North an apol­ogy. Not me! I have done my dash of apol­o­gis­ing to the crowd that turned up to see this iconic air­craft.

It was dif­fi­cult to ex­plain why the Catalina couldn’t make it when so many oth­ers did.

Air­craft came from Hamil­ton, Mercer, Parakai, Whi­tianga, Whanga¯rei, and flew all around North­land on Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day. There was no at­tempt to make an al­ter­na­tive plan.

The North­land Age, North­ern Ad­vo­cate and the lo­cal ra­dio sta­tions gave us good me­dia cov­er­age, and con­se­quently car­loads of lo­cals turned up.
