Grumman HU-16 Albatross Gallery
This superb walk-round shows the record breaking Grumman HU-16 Albatross s/no. 0-15282 which set a new world altitude record for twin-engine amphibians, reaching 32,883 feet on 4th July, 1973. Click here to see this aircraft landing after the flight, with images from our own Photo Gallery section. Subsequently, a fortnight after this flight, the aircraft was retired and was flown to the USAF Aviation Museum, where it resides today and where these images were taken. This walk-round has been kindly donated to SEAWINGS by the Dayton Chapter of the I.P.M.S. (International Plastic Modeling Society) with permission courtesy of Bob Ellis, Webmaster and Mark E. Young, Jr, MSGT, USAF (Ret). The Dayton Chapter has a cracking club web site; click here to visit it. Grateful thanks to you both and best regards to all your members. Happy modeling!
