Great Photo! Thanks for posting it.
:( I remember playing on some at the wrecking yards at Blackalls Park in NSW, the floats were removed as they made boats out of them and I used to run up the wing and make her take a huge seesaw :) I still remember the green interior and the smell of oils and that paint.
Then one day they took the engines and the props -- she looked so different :(
AHH memories :)

What a beauty! Thanks for posting.
I lived about 1 km from Canadair in Montreal when I was a kid. Beautiful aircraft, great photo!
Great shot of the Catalina! My first flight was as an AR in late 40's @ NAS Seattle.

Turned out to be shakedown flight following major overhaul. The 3 AR's got a helluva ride including several increasingly severe waterlandings in Lake Washington, stalls, etc "wringing out" the bird!

Only after landing did we find out from brass that met the a/c crew that only qualified crew members were authorized to be on board!!

Am a member of the PBY-Naval Air Museum in Oak Harbor, WA. Our PBY-5 is the centerpiece.

Possible memory hiccup, but is there sn AD requiring removal of the front turret for water ops?????

huh? removal of the front turret for water ops?
Entirely inconsistent with the intent of the aircraft, so I would think not.
What a beauty? Notice the center wing support sitting on the top of the fuselage...clearly an Art Deco influence. Great picture, thanks for posting it.

The center wing mount is known as a 'parasoll' design, lowering the C.G.
The next lower would be the 'shoulder' wing.
