Grumman HU-16 Albatross. Naval Fighters 11. Book by Steve Ginter. The HU-16 Albatross started out as a Grumman company venture in the late 40s and became such a success that it has been used by more than two dozen armed forces throughout the world. It has endured to become one of those hand-me-down aircraft like the venerable DC-3/C-47 and is still in use today. This is a thorough examination of this remarkable amphibious flying boat in US Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and foreign service. Includes technical data, aircraft procedures, performance tables, anecdotes and a model kit summary. Illustrated with 188 b/w photos, 25 color photos, and 18 pages of in-depth descriptive drawings; 74 pages.
