This is a restored Consolidated PBY Catalina in what I call "The Dead Aircraft Park" at JBLM McChord Field. It's a "Flying Boat" that served the US Navy and Canadian, and other militaries from 1935 to 1979. Please have a look at the Flickr link to see this really nice bird being painted in the Paint Hanger at McChord AFB.
