Comments: The history of HMAS Albatross and Australian Naval Aviation.

HMAS Albatross, also known as Naval Air Station (NAS) Nowra (IATA: NOA, ICAO: YSNW), is an airfield operated by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), in support of the RAN's aviation branch, the Fleet Air Arm. The base, located near Nowra, New South Wales, was established in 1941 as Royal Australian Air Force base RAAF Nowra, then was transferred to the Royal Navy as HMS Nabbington in 1944, and operated as a naval air station until it was decommissioned in late 1945. In 1948, the airfield was commissioned into the RAN as HMAS Albatross, as the primary shore base for the Fleet Air Arm. As of 2011, four squadrons of the Fleet Air Arm operate from Albatross.
