On the morning of December 7, 1941, Consolidated PBY-5 Catalina 14-P-2 was undertaking a patrol off the coast of Hawaii when Ensign Otto F. Meyer, Jr. and his crew became aware of the Japanese attack against the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. At around 10 A.M. a formation of nine enemy aircraft passed directly in front of his PBY before turning in to attack. In the ensuing melee, Meyer skillfully flew his large flying boat to evade each enemy attack, while his gunners returned fire, inflicting damage on a number of the enemy aircraft. Low on fuel and ammunition the Japanese aircraft flew off in the direction of their carriers leaving the bullet ridden Catalina to search for the Japanese Task Force.

Back at the Catalina’s home base at Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay, the Japanese attack had left a scene of absolute devastation, with many aircraft destroyed, or seriously damaged. Of the sixty-one Catalina’s available on the island of Oahu that fateful morning, all but eleven of them were destroyed or severely damaged by the attack – all remaining serviceable Catalina’s were ordered into the air to search for the Japanese Fleet.

PBY Catalina was the US Navy's designation for an American and Canadian-built flying boat of the 1930s and 1940s. The PBY could be equipped with torpedoes, bombs, depth charges, and 50 caliber machine guns. It was one of the most widely used aircraft of World War II. Catalina's served with every branch of the U.S. military and in the military forces of many other nations.
