Quick Overview

The Catalina rescue missions are best remembered by the airmen picked up from life rafts at sea. The missions code name, "Dumbo" were first used as a voice radio call sign. "Dumbos" were regularly assigned to strike missions, usually orbiting on stand-by in the vicinity of target areas. The high regard in which the PBY was held, is reflected by this remark attributed to an Army pilot, "When I see a PBY I always stand up and salute it!
