The PBY-5 Catalina was one of the most successful patrol flying boats ever used by the U.S. military Navy. Powered by two Wright R-1830-92 radial engines of 1,200 horsepower, the PBY-5 Catalina could cruise at 150 mph for hours, with a maximum range of 2,500 miles. The PBY served with distinction and played a prominent and invaluable role in the war against the Japanese.
