GRUMMAN HU-16 ALBATROSS
Thought by many sailors as a symbol of good luck, the Albatross is one of the most efficient and largest flying birds with a long wingspan. Much like its namesake, this large, amphibious seaplane was designed to land in deep, open-ocean situations to primarily conduct search and rescue operations. Beginning in 1949, three branches of the United States military utilized the Grumman HU-16 Albatross and were vital in many operations around the world. In 2008, this aircraft underwent an extensive 15-year restoration where it received updated systems and a unique teak wood interior. The plane has a bit of an art deco feel to suit her vintage, along with the simple elegance of a beloved yacht and rests on Goodyear Flight Leader and Flight Eagle tires.
