Always a pleasure to shots of this out and about - hopefully some can persuade them to put in an appearance at a show/fly-in this year?

Beautiful shots, watched it land in the Solent today near Colwell bay, guess they visited The Hut restaurant, which is geared up for accepting visitors from the sea.

Is this the same Albatross that appeared at the Waddington Airshow one year ? (can't remember when)

No, it's not.
N98TP is ex-USAF HU-16B 51-7186 c/n G-243.
The one at Waddi in 2002 was ex-USNavy HU-16C 141262/N7025N c/n G-409.
