Artist's Description

Photograph from USCG – Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn NY 1952/1953… Screen-shot Nikon D80, October, 2013

The Consolidated Vutlee PBY Catalina first flew in 1936 and the type stayed in production until 1945. The US Coast Guard used PBYs for rescue duties from World War II until well into the 1950s.
This twin-engine, parasol-wing flying boat and amphibian was on of the slowest aircraft of the war; it was said the it was in danger of being struck by birds from behind. But. despite its unimpressive speed, the PBY was a sturdy, versatile aircraft that could land in some of the most difficult conditions to perform recues.
More Catalinas were built than any other flying-boat in history.
