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.
