Consolidated Catalina under construction
A line of Consolidated Catalinas under construction. The most notable absence at this point are the blister windows. The Consolidated workers pictures are celebrating the aircraft's role in the sinking of the Bismarck
US Navy PBY Catalina Units of the Pacific War, Louis B Dorny Osprey Combat Aircraft 62.

The text is well supported with first hand accounts, contemporary photographs and full colour illustrations. [see more]
