This 200 foot wingspan Martin Mars parks in the lake down the street during fire season here. It’s a 1945 patrol plane that has been converted for fire fighting. The “Hawaii Mars” that is here is the sixth built of seven before production was ceased. You know when it’s flying around. The windows in the house start to shake and the noise is incredible. Four 18 cylinder radials will do that.
