Until the mid 1990s Miami was an interesting place for aviation enthousiasts. The international airport had many rare sights to offer, but the town's harbour wasn't bad either! From their small base on Watson Island, Chalk's operated scheduled flights to several Caribbean islands. Here one of their Grumman Albatrosses can be seen shortly after touchdown, with Miami's large cruise liner terminal in the background.
Miami's distinctive Freedom Tower (built in 1925) forms a nice backdrop for this Turbo Mallard, taxiing across Miami's harbour. The landing gear has already been lowered and engine power is about to be increased to taxi up the slope onto Watson Island's small ramp.
