Re: Shorts flying boats still flying?
I remember reading about that last on its way to Kermit Weeks, they were having trouble raising anyone on HF about mid Atlantic, so an high overflyer offered to relay a position report for them.
This was duly passed to the overflyer who said he got it all except the altitude, "please say your altitude again".
The Sunderland said " 500 ft, I say again 500ft".
There was a stunned silence for a few few seconds then the high overflyer said
"Caught any fish ?".
