Built by Consolidated. Built for the Royal Air Force (RAF) as PBY-5B Catalina serial number FP216, but was never delivered.
Postwar, this Catalina was assigned to NAS Pensacola for the Land Survival Training Center from 1945-1992.
Donated and restored by the National Museum of Naval Aviation. In 2002 the restored catalina was dedicated and put on display with a cutaway view of the fuselage under PBY-5 Catalina 08317.
