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.
