4th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Water Bombs Away!

The last operating Martin Mars aircraft, Hawaii Mars, executes a water bombing of runway 36 at EAA Airventure 2016 in Oshkosh. Originally designed for the Navy as a long-range patrol and transport flying boat, Hawaii Mars was later re-purposed as a water-bomber capable of carrying up to 7,200 gallons of water. And if you want it, it's for sale!
