The Albatross
Size: 2ft x 3ft Oil   Date: Mid 1950s
Artwork Located:
Air Headquarters Breifing Room

Description:
Grumman SA-16A Albatross amphibians were a part of the Search and Rescue Flight at Drigh Road (now Faisal) Air Base, Karachi in the mid-1950s.

The aircraft were also used for coastal patrol and maritime reconnaissance during the 1965 War. One of their more important tasks was to keep a sharp look out for the Indian Navy aircraft carrier "Vikrant' whose entry into the area would have added a new and far more menacing dimension to the air war in the south.
