One of the aircraft on my "must see" list is at the New England Air Museum where the VS-44A Excambian lives!

The VS-44A/PBS-1 design has always interested me. A graceful looking four engined flying boat of which only a handful were built (1 XPBS-1 and 3 VS-44A). The XPBS-1 and the first VS-44A Excaliber, illustrated in this post, were both lost during 1942.

Of the four aircraft built, Excambian has survived, been restored and is on display.
