Has the old pre-1930's design concept, build a fusalage (in this case hull) and add wings. I saw several (dozen or so) in, of all places, Albequerque (sp) New Mexico, US.

The most famous flying boat of WWII. The Catalina carried its big wing on a pylon on top of the fuselage. The PBY had a long range and was very reliable. Its disadvantage was slowness, which made it vulnerable. The PBY-5A and PBY-6A were amphibian versions; all other Catalinas were flying boats. The PBY was also built in the USSR and Canada. Its users included Britain, France, the USSR, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada, and Denmark.
