"Here's a plane that I always admired. Good to know that there's at least one left for history...," John.
This was one really cool aircraft, it was flown by the Navy from the 1930's & wasn't retired from military until 1980. For you airplane enthusiasts.
We see a lot on the restorations of WWII era bombers and fighters, but this is something quite unusual.
The story of PBY-5A CATALINA (Strawberry 5) discovery and restoration for the US Navy museum in San Diego. It was the only remaining intact PBY-5 Catalina remaining in the World, and it was discovered in South Africa.
PBY "STRAWBERRY 5" WAS THE PLANE THAT FOUND THE JAPANESE CARRIERS AT THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY WHICH BECAME THE TURNING POINT IN THE PACIFIC THEATER OF WWII. BEAUTIFULLY DONE ? ENJOY
