Eponymous PB2B;


The PBY Catalina was the most successful flying boat ever produced. Designed and built by American aircraft manufacturer Consolidated Aircraft of San Diego, California, they were first flown in March 1935 and were in production for over ten years. The Museum's Catalina is one of 168 ordered by the RAAF, No. A24-385, for service during World War II. It was built under licence from the Boeing Aircraft of Canada Limited, Vancouver, in 1944, as a type PB2B-2 and arrived in Australia on 3 September 1945, only weeks after the Japanese surrender. The Catalinas in RAAF service, despite their vulnerability due to lack of speed, were front-line aircraft effectively taking the fight to the Japanese through long distance mine-laying flights.
