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."
