Never seen one but every photo I've ever seen, including this one, shows them as lovely flying machines.

Thanks for posting this, my long gone Uncle Hugh flew these in WWII and, amongst other things, also flew Liberators across the Atlantic back to the UK, alas he never spoke of those times so these memories are now lost.

Regards
Mike

Cracking image...aviation and landscape combined...doesn't get much better!

This particular aircraft flew low over my house about 6-7 years ago on its way to an airshow...lovely sight and sound. Didn't have my camera handy unfortunately.

thanks for posting.

Wonder why the right hand prop is feathered!? Must be quite rare to see a PBY on water these days! Nice one!

One engine was knackered and had to be replaced, perhaps thatís the reason.
