The PBY Catalina is the most famous seaplane in aviation history. It began with the protype of the Consolidated PBY Catalina in March 1935. It is a tough, dependable aircraft that proved itself during WWII by taking on bombing, reconnaissance, convey escort, transport, and anti-submarine warfare missions.

It was a Catalina that first spotted the Japanese fleet flying to attack Midway Island in 1942, helping the US win and creating a turning point in the war. Production ended in 1945, with about 4,000 Catalinas.
