Crews from Coulson Flying tankers both pulled Martin Mars giant seaplane into the water of the Sproat Lake this week.
First the Philippine Mars, painted in a vintage blue US Navy scheme, was launched Monday. The red-white Hawaii Mars waterbomber has been into the water on Tuesday and if all goes well, it will take flight this week for its first flight of this year.
A timelapse video made the one giant seaplane.
The Hawaii Mars will hold demonstration flights on EAA AirVentures airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, July 25 31.
