Albatross

A Grumann Albatross landing in Palm Springs today This aircraft entered service in the USAF in 1953 and served during combat in search and rescue in Korea and Vietnam. 

It left Palm Springs after fueling and went on to Catalina Island. I really wanted to marshal in to the Palm Springs Air Museum ramp but it would have made a real mess for flight operations.
