The tail would recall the PBY-6A but this PBY-5A has been hyper modified inside and out. See this post for the specifics 🙂 It has reside outside the hangar of the Wings Over Miami Air Museum for years while ownership was argued in the court system. It is a live aircraft though it has not flown in some time. Oil stains under the engines attest to that. Soon it will fly to a new home though so this may be the last time to see her while she is in Miami, The owners may be advised to fly her away before Florida’s portion of this year’s hurricane season arrives since there is no room in the hangar for her.
