About This Content

Guess HU? Virtavia is back with another stunning warbird, the Grumman HU-16B Albatross for FSX: Steam Edition

Serving mainly as a search and rescue aircraft with the US Air Force, the Albatross is an amphibious flying boat, first flown in 1949. Numerous alterations and improvements were made to the aircraft over its career, including a 16-foot wing extension as seen in the ‘B’ variant recreated for FSX: Steam Edition. A total of 466 aircraft in the HU-16 series were built by Grumman.

The FSX: Steam Edition version of this bird comes with seven models (including three civilian variants) with 12 unique high-definition texture sets, including custom specular maps and bump mapping. Take this one out near a sea or ocean and test your water landing abilities!
