The Albatross bird is one of the largest flying birds with a wingspan of up to 12 feet (3.7m). The albatross bird can live a long life of up to 50 years. Albatrosses are highly efficient in the air, covering great distances, ranging over huge areas of ocean and regularly circle the globe. Albatrosses are capable of measuring the exact airspeed in flight, using dynamic and slope soaring to cover great distances with little exertion. They can fly about 1000km a day, without flapping its wings once.
The dynamic soaring of Albatrosses is inspiring to airplane designers. The Albatross's nuanced flight pattern has been charted and airplane engineers are looking for ways to apply this to aircraft, especially in the area of drones and unmanned aircraft. *
Do you know that “Albatross” is another term for double eagle in golf?
In golf, “Albatross” means scoring three under par (−3) (the albatross being one of the largest birds); also called a double eagle in the U.S. This is an extremely rare score, and occurs most commonly on par-fives with a strong drive and a holed approach shot. Holes-in-one on par-four holes (generally short ones) are also Albatrosses. The first famous albatross was made by Gene Sarazen in 1935 on the 15th hole at Augusta National Golf Club during the final round of the Masters Tournament. It vaulted him into a tie for first place and forced a playoff, which he won the next day. The sportswriters of the day termed it "the shot heard 'round the world." *
