Albatross Arrival

Member Tim Jackson has flown many aircraft for the CAF. He is an FAA check pilot on almost every warbird out there. Recently he has gotten the job of flying an Albatross out of the Anoka airport. It is the much more versatile form of a buisness jet, considering it is a flying boat. Tim brought it by Fleming Field to say hi!

(The Albatross is quite large, very much like it's namesake. It uses radial engine, and is thus very likely to attract a crowd with its roar)

(It is a quite interesting looking aircraft, and can even handle being on the ocean)

(Tim takes off for another adventure)

(It looks large, but the big wing and radials get it off the ground quickly)
