About the Author
Hans Wiesman (author of 'The Dakota Hunter' book & blogs) traces his†profound passion for the DC-3/Dakota and the PBY Catalina back to the age of five. Between the years 1951?1956 he lived in the Borneo Jungle and he flew in both aircraft with his father, a Shell oil exploration engineer. Hans' love affair with these aircraft has never faded and later in his career, being a Creative executive†for an International Brand, he met the†PBY Catalina again and created a TV documentary series with that legendary aircraft as being the image-carrier. It brought him another†250 flight hours with the PBY and a wealth of unique experiences and photographs on his double Transamerican tours.† With only a few PBY Cansos/Catalinas now left in airworthy condition, the saga told and depicted in this book is his heartfelt personal and colorful tribute to this iconic aircraft.
