HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...Here are a few pictures and covers of books that have been in my dad's flight bag for over 50 years. I used to look at them when I was a kid and then when I got on line awhile back I punched in PBY and found http://www.pby.com. I got all this stuff back out and sent some to him...He flew anti-submarine patrols in the Carribean before shipping out to the Pacific. He was usually with the VPB-91. He was also good friends with the crew that found the survivors of the Indianapolis and would like to know why that crew was broken up after they saved the sailors..."

HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "..."Catalinas" performed a variety of essential duties, including long-range scouting and antisubmarine patrols, convoy escorts, SAR (search and rescue) and torpedo/bombing attack operations...One squadron in particular (the Black Cats) with aircraft painted black for night operations only, were credited with sinking hundreds of tons of enemy shipping. Two squadrons (VP-63 and VP-9l) were equipped with magnetic detection gear in order to locate submerged submarines.
