    Does anybody have any draw or scheme of this experimental flying boat. I do have nothing except few photos.
    It was quite interesting occasion in worlds aviation history when flying boat was converted into land base strategic bomber that became legendary B-24 Liberator. It had directly the same wing. The only difference was 4 engines instead of 2 on XP4Y.

    And what changes of fuselage did happen I am interesting in.

    They later made it a cannon armed anti-ship/sub testbed with drastic modifications to the nose area. Look at the San Diego Aerospace Museum website and search in their on-line photo database for any combination of Consolidated XP4Y “Corregidor” and prepare to be amazed! Enjoy!

    My mistake! The really good pictures I was talking about were in an old issue of AAHS journal that I have. (Just re-found it today!) Let me know if you still need it. Send me a PM.

    Sorry for the delay!

    Regards, Jim
