The HU-16 Albatross is a large twin-radial engine amphibious flying boat that was used by the US Air Force, the US Navy and the US Coast Guard, primarily in the search and rescue role. The Albatross was developed to land in open ocean situations to rescue downed pilots and other flight crew members. Its deep-V hull cross-section and substantial length enable it to land in the open sea.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
