Product Description


Print Size 8½” x 11” ----- Unlimited print edition
Consolidated PBY Catalina, here was aviation at its essence. The high wing, twin engine Catalina was not speedy, not flashy, not graceful, but it was more practical than anyone realized when the first ship took to the skies on 28 March 1935. With its braced parasol wing and seagoing hull, the PBY Catalina became famous and was built in larger numbers than any other flying boat in aviation history. The PBY revolutionized long range patrol in the US Navy. The well-loved 'Cat' ranged outward at great distance to stalk the enemy's fleet or to attack his submarines, and British Catalina’s ferreted out the elusive German warship Bismarck. A PBY spotted the periscope of a Japanese submarine at Pearl Harbor. On all the world's oceans, Catalina’s fought valiantly. Some were among the first American aircraft to carry radar. They were amphibians, flying from land or sea. Also produced in Canada and Russia, the Catalina often shed its warlike duties to become a Samaritan, bringing salvation to those in peril. It was old when World War II began. It was slow and could be uncomfortable, but the Consolidated PBY Catalina was one of the classic designs, rarely has an aircraft proved so useful to so many people. A deadly adversary to an enemy submarines or warship, the PBY is better remembered as the angel of mercy which achieved thousands of rescues in all circumstances throughout the war.

  1. Great drawing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2020

    My father piloted a PBY 3 during WW2. His plane had the nose turret but no blisters on the sides. Also it was a pure seaplane, no landing gear on the sides. I am pleased with the quality of your drawings and your prompt service. Thank you again!
