So a Catalina was being used in the filming of a Nic Cage movie. It had been 'restored' (was apparently flyable and working as a tanker before being restored) to it's WWII appearance for the movie. During filming, it started taking on water and was beached, with the nose mostly underwater.
A salvage company tried to retrieve it, hoisting it onto a barge. They apparently should have let the water out of the hull as they lifted it, because they turned it into a crumpled mess.
