HU-16 Albatross (multiple)

Hu-16E Albatross (March AFB 04-11-18) 7708

Here are some photos I took of the Grumman HU-16 Albatross on display at the Pima Air&Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz., during a visit in the spring of 2017. The Albatross was originally designated as the SA-16 for the USAF and the JR2F-1 and UF-1 for the USN and USCG, but was redesignated as the HU-16 in 1962. The Albatross in the Coast Guard markings was photographed at March AFB. Other Albatross examples were photographed at Pima and the NMoUSAF
