Red Baron Seaplanes Townsville

This movie star is gracing the skies above beautiful Townsville and Magnetic Island in North Queensland. The historical Grumman Sea-Cat starred in the movie 'The Phantom' and is now being cast in a new adventure. It's the only two passenger, open cockpit bi-plane on floats in the world. Billy Zane flew in it, Catherine Zeta-Jones flew in it, now it's your turn to fly in the Red Baron Seaplane for an experience of a lifetime. So, while at the Reef Lodge Backpackers in Townsville, take a short walk to the marina (500m) and see a bit of movie history.


Biplanes used by the Sky Bandits, Drax's female pilots. The Phantom and Diana steal 
one and escape in it.


In "The Phantom" movie it crashes into a cliff after they have to bail out mid-flight when the plane runs out of fuel.
