ex-U.S. Coast Guard # 7246.
Very cool to see this bird in person!
The 1957 Albatross once served with the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard; now used for marketing support at 2008 Red Bull Air Race.
I was very excited to get to sit in the left seat of such an old aircraft. Thanks to the people from Red Bull for letting me take a peek!
This bird's been flying for 54 years. On static display at the Wirefly X-Prize Cup 2006.
