The Grumman HU-16 Albatross was an amphibious biplane used by the United States Air Force and Navy from the 1950s through the 1970s. It was one of the largest and most capable seaplanes ever built, and was used for search and rescue, transport, and antisubmarine warfare. The HU-16B was a two-seat variant of the HU-16A, with a more powerful engine and increased fuel capacity. It was originally designed for the U.S. Navy, but was later adopted by the U.S. Air Force, who used it for search and rescue missions. The aircraft was powered by two Wright R-1820-76A engines, and could carry up to 16 passengers or 12 litter patients.
