One of several PBY Catalina flying boats wrecked in the harbour.
Catalina crashed during take off and lies resting with one wing crumpled and the other still supported above the sand. The tail has been ripped off. The cockpit is worth a look as controls and the steering wheels are still visible also the forward gun turret.
