The Grumman HU-16B Albatross is a twin-engine amphibious flying boat. First flown in 1949, the HU-16 underwent a number of modifications and improvements over its storied career that included service with dozens of nations in a variety of roles. The HU-16B features a 16-foot wing extension over the initial production variant and was a definitive model, seeing service primarily with the United States Air Force as a coastal search-and-rescue aircraft. In total, Grumman built 466 Albatrosses, some of which still fly today in private collections.
