Excuse me, but I am prtty sure that is not Grumman Goose; rather it is a Martin Mars, one of the largest seaplanes ever in production

May be one of the greatest photos of the Hawaii Mars that has ever been made. Love the angle. It may be picking up water for a forest fire bomb drop.

Sorry, but the aircraft displayed as a Grummman Goose is a Martin Mars. It did operate as a water dropper in Canada Bye, Gordon

I remember seeing a show on TV, (Discovery Channel or similar) featuring the fire fighting company and their Martin Mars. This is probably the same aircraft. Anyone else see that show?

skyhawkrg, the show was called "Mighty Planes" and I saw it on the Smithsonian Channel a while back. The shows were documentaries and they did them on a number of planes both civil and military.

Seem unable to change the heading once photo was posted..
