Nugget’s Catalina Flyout

𝐴 𝐡𝑖𝑑 π‘œπ‘“ π»π‘–π‘ π‘‘π‘œπ‘Ÿπ‘¦

In the midst of World War 2, a small island off the coast of California became a popular tourist site. The island of Catalina had to handle more tourists. In 1941, Buffalo Springs airport was built. Shortly thereafter, in 1942, the USAAF took control of the airport as a sub-base for March AFB. However, by 1946, the airport began commercial operations, and was renamed Catalina Airport. Unbelievably, through the 1950-1990s, many notable airlines operated between this island and the mainland USA. Most flights landed at notable destinations, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Santa Ana, and San Diego, using STOL aircraft. United Airlines began their operations in the 1950s, using DC-3s on flights to Los Angeles via Long Beach. Golden West Airlines began flights on their DHC-6, along with seaplane flights out of Avalon harbor. TWA began flights in the late 1980s with flights to Los Angeles and Santa Ana. In the 2010s, major repairs were performed by Caltrans, costing several hundreds of thousands of dollars. The first plane to land after the repairs was a DC-3, formerly belonging to the island’s owner.

Everything is well organized. You have to wait like a week or 2 to announce it :)

Should I take it down?

Okay. I’ll make it private for now. :)

Wait hold on, I don’t think you need to take it down @NuggetFornia, it’s a great thread. Maybe just move the event date back a week or something.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think moving the date and leaving it listed is ok

Well, I can move it further a month and host it near Thanksgiving. Yes.

Moving it back just a week is fine, I think
