  1. Sure is. Consolidated PBY Catalina. My Grandpa was Navy pilot WW2 and that was his girl. Purple heart Navy cross recipient. He retired as captain Glenview Naval Airbase 1977. He’d recuse down pilots in the roughest ocean waves on FUMES, sometimes having to put pilots onto wings and wait for the calvary because running out of fuel and weight. He loved that plane, it was death taxes reliable and could take a beating.
