And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Transatlantic. It was a good seaplane for the day. Savoia-Marchetti S.55Delete
Wow, a rip snortin' 100mph. Wow, hang on! Tree MikeReplyDelete
Low cruising speed, but long duration - typical of seaplanes. The Catalina could stay in the air 20+ hours if I recall.ReplyDelete
