New Nick Cage movie to feature restored PBY
Remember that scene in Jaws, when Quint and Hooper are comparing scars? It finally comes out that Quint was on the USS Indianapolis, and was one of the few rescued sailors from that ship. The survivors were found by a Consolidated PBY Catalina.
A new film is in the works that tells the complete story of the mission, and rescue. One of the stars of the show is a PBY owned by Bud Rude of Spanaway, WA, and restored by John and Kevin Schell.
Also, watch the War Dept. film on the Catalina.
