On retirement from Water Bombing the Aircraft was eventually extensively converted for use as a Passenger Aircraft. The Company for whom the conversion was carried out never became operational and after a period of open storage was acquired by Catalina Aircraft Company, made Airworthy and flown in stages to the UK.
