Consolidated-Vultee PBY-5A Catalina

@Military Aviation Museum, Virginia Beach, VA

May 2012

This beautiful Catalina (BuNo 48294) is part of Gerald Yagen’s impressive flyable museum collection.  After wartime duty in the Atlantic, it saw civilian use in Alaska for passenger and cargo hauling before being involved in drug smuggling and eventual seizure by the US Marshals.
