I was wondering what this slow lumbering aircraft was, as it flew over downtown Honolulu toward runway 22L. Turns out to be this smart Billabong Albatross seaplane, which is caught a split second before touch down at sunset. Very cool plane, and I have no idea why she is here. It also appears that this aircraft has some special stickers applied near the nose, that says "Hawaiian".
