In the later 1950s PBYs could be seen flying over the San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles) on water-drop operations fighting brush fires in the mountains surrounding Los Angeles.

Actually, Canadair build Casino's under license from Consolidated;
The Consolidated PBY Catalina, also known as the Canso in Canadian service, is an American flying boat, and later an amphibious aircraft of the 1930s and 1940s produced by Consolidated Aircraft. It was one of the most widely used seaplanes of World War II. Catalinas served with every branch of the United States Armed Forces and in the air forces and navies of many other nations
