Detailed Description

The world's most famous active PBY-5A Catalina is for Sale.  This globally admired Warbird has brought pleasure at international airshows and community events in the care of the New Zealand Catalina Group.  This unique WWII veteran was never a waterbomber, is fitted with 16 passenger seats and has operated on fresh water lakes for the last 28 years.  This Catalina has undergone numerous engineering improvements while in the care of the New Zealand organization and deserves a special home where it can continue to educate people on the sacrifices PBY crews from several nations undertook during WWII.  This Canadian build Catalina (Canso) has been the subject of several books, DVDs and Television Documentaries throughout its civilian career.
