Consolidated PBY-6A Catalina #1

The Consolidated PBY Catalina flying boat served with distinction in the Anti-Submarine, Maritime Reconnaissance, Search and Rescue, Mine Laying and Special Forces support roles in World War II. The prototype first flew in March 1935 and the type was produced from 1936 to 1945.

The last version of the 'Cat' to be developed, the PBY 6A, amphibian, was the culmination of a design associated with some of the most notable maritime air operations of the Second World War.
