Avalon Bay, historic home to Indians, pirates and smugglers, is the romantic backdrop
for a glittering parade of famous people who interacted during Santa Catalina Island’s
aviation history. The Knights of Avalon is a fascinating real-life adventure story
of the 20th century, showcasing the flying boats and intrepid pilots that evoke memories
of exciting times and places. Aviation pioneers Glenn Martin, Donald Douglas, and
other notables such as stars Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Ronald Reagan and
even the Wrigley family and their Chicago Cubs baseball team all played their parts.
Beginning with the visionary inventors at the birth of aviation, and progressing
to the navigation of the world’s great oceans, this book furnishes a modern look
at what is widely known as “the Golden Age of Aviation.” Aircraft designers William
Boeing, Leroy Grumman, and Igor Sikorsky are also profiled. Explore the spectacular
rise and rapid disappearance of the flying boat from the world scene and learn “the
rest of the story” of the how the last flying boat made in America came to be owned
by actress Maureen O’Hara.
From the unique perspective of working for Catalina Air Lines for seven years, the
author, David Johnston, highlights the personal backgrounds and experiences of the
“Knights” — five “water pilots” and one stewardess who all greatly contributed to
the richness of the aviation lore of the island. Also included are many humorous
stories about some of the supporting cast for these knights, the “dock boys” in Avalon
