It's always amazing to see pictures of the Martin Mars water bombers in action ... I've seen the planes in person, but not while on a mission.

I hope that one of the two extant Mars aircraft ends up at the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola - restored and repainted to original specs.

Considering that the Martin Mars spent relatively a small time as a military aircraft, I think it should stay in its fire fighting colours.

I have been inside and walked on the wings until they started to tip towards the water.

A nice museum should put it inside somewhere!
