An operational HU-16B Albatross Electronic Counter Measures aircraft of the Diikissi Aeroporias Naftikou (Greek Naval Aviation). The aircraft belonged to 353 MNAS 'Triena', a squadron that was disbanded in December 2009. The HU-16Bs flew up to 1995 after which they were retired, at that time the aircraft belonged to the Navy. This 510070 flew once in Norway as 51-070/KK-H.
This Albatross served with the USAF as 52-0135 and the USCG as 2135 before being retired to MASDC in December 1969. After being declared as excess it was sold to a Forida company (presumably for spares) in 1989 and allocated the civil registration N7025Y. It now languishes in the Western International on the edge of AMARG.
On lease from the USAF to operate services through the US Trust Territory in the western Pacific. Civil registration finally cancelled in 1996 over 25 years after it was returned to the USAF. Al Bovelt photo.
