My new job has me issuing permits to anyone wanting to do events in LA / Long Beach Harbors...so, I ended up working with a company that is showing off it's inflight internet via a restored 1952 Grumman Albatross Seaplane. It's been comming in and out of Long Beach all week, hanging out near the Queen Mary. I'm going up in it today...kinda reminds me of the old China Clippers you would take to the islands back in the day...
