Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Consolidated PB2Y Coronado.

The Consolidated PB2Y Coronado was a fou engine flying boat patrol bomber designed by Consolidated Aircraft. The two inner engines were fitted with four-bladed reversible pitch propellers; the outer engines had standard three-bladed feathering props. The first prototype with a single tail experienced stability problems so the design evolved into the PB2Y-2, with a large cantilever wing and a twin tail with very marked dihedral. Ten of them were purchased by the Royal Air Force Coastal Command but failed in the anti-submarine role due to their limited range. Eventually, they have flew transatlantic cargo flights. The United States Navy too hoped to use the Coronado as a maritime patrol and ASW aircraft and even tried to use it as a bomber but eventually converted as unarmed transports, some fitted for medical evacuation role. All of the survivors were scrapped during summer of 1946 but one (BuNo 7099) now preserved at National Naval Aviation Museum, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Pensacola, Florida.

217 Consolidated PB2Y Coronado were built.
