Mel Crocker's Black Cats and Dumbos is back in print, thanks to the efforts of his son Gary. This is a great book and is a favorite among PBY Veterans.

It's not the prettiest web site around, but it may be someday. My main intent however, is to get as much history as possible about the planes into the database. My second priority is to publish documents from various national archives. I'm interested in any information you want to contribute as well. I hope you find something you like!
