PBY-5 Catalina - WWII US Amphibious Aircraft

The PBY Catalina was an American flying boat and was one of the most widely used seaplanes of World War II. During World War II, PBYs were used in anti-submarine warfare, patrol bombing, convoy escorts, search and rescue missions (especially air-sea rescue), and cargo transport. The Navy Catalinas that were used in the Pacific against the Japanese for night operations were painted black overall, and as a result were sometimes referred to locally as "Black Cats."

Challenge Coin

I was very pleased with the quality of the coin.

Sizing

I really liked the tee shirt's color and design. However, the size was too small for me. I normally wear a large. I don't know why it was so tight. Perhaps it was the material from which it was made (polyester).

This is so much better then I could have imagined! Glad I decided last minute to put it on my order

Not signed no communication from the store

I left the rating at a 5 cuz the book is great but don’t think it’s coming from the store signed as indicated or that you’ll be able to get ahold of anyone I have sent 3 emails and still nothing.

i bought this originally when i went to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. A few weeks ago i lost this pin and was devastated. I didn’t know what life even meant anymore, I searched for about a week before i found these on this page. I was so grateful and happy I could have happiness again !!!
