An unique plane made an appearance on Seattle's Lake Union Wednesday.

According to a KING 5 viewer who cites the Eastlake Blog, the plane is a Grumman Albatross N44HQ, built in 1951 for search and rescue missions. The plan is now used by the satellite-based Wi-Fi company Row44.

The plane is likely on Lake Union for the Boats Afloat show under way.
