Model Airplane Factory offers you this elegant Martin PBM 5 Mariner Seaplane Wood Model Airplane made from mahogany wood. The process starts from carving the fuselage of the Navy PBM-5 Mariner mahogany display model and the intakes on the fuselage sides to the PBM 5 aircraft cruciform tail design, to the assembly of the whole plane, and finally the final polishing of the PBM-5 model airplane. The rich color paint scheme and markings of the Mariner PBM aircraft are cautiously painted to the assembled PBM-5 Mariner wood model. This model comes with a metal stand and wooden base.


The Dutch Navy acquired seventeen PBM-5a Mariners at the end of 1955 for service in former Dutch New Guinea. The PBM-5a is an amphibian plane with retractable landing gear. The engines are 2100 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800-34. After several incidents the Dutch scrapped the aircraft in January 1960.

Flight 19 was the designation of a group of five United States Navy Grumman/GM TBM Avenger torpedo bombers which disappeared during a training exercise on December 5, 1945 from Ft Lauderdale Naval Air Station, Florida. All 14 airmen on the flight died. An additional 13 crew-members of a search and rescue aircraft, PBM-5 BuNo 59225, sent to find them were killed when it exploded in midair. Navy investigators concluded that Flight 19 became disoriented and ditched at sea when the aircraft ran out out of fuel, while the PBM was a victim of mechanical failure. Some have questioned the Navy's version in the years since, with the resulting speculation contributing to the development of the Bermuda Triangle legend.
