Reader photos: Southern California Moments, Day 283
Perfect landing: A 1950s Grumman HU-16 Albatross seaplane floats in Catalina Island's Avalon Bay after landing on Sept. 14 in this photo by reader Kassie.
"One of the two pilots is climbing to the top of the plane and the other is handling a line to a mooring on the bow. Amazing moment, since seaplane passenger service to stopped Avalon about 25 years ago," Kassie wrote.
