Martin Mars Question

Postby HeyfordDave111 on Sun 25 Feb 2018, 8:14 pm

Hi everyone,

4 years ago I was granted permission on a rather wet and dark day to visit Coulson’s centre on Vancouver Island.

However, I was on my own with no one to ask, I have a question someone out there might be able to help with....
Out on the lake was moored “red tail’ Hawaii Mars, painted for its trip to Pensacola was Phillipine Mars, but there was a forward cockpit and a set of wings there too.
Can anyone identify these for me please? Both from the same aircraft I presume, but which one?

Cheers
Dave

The cockpit is presumably 76825 the uncompleted one.

Have you seen Kermit Weeks's tour through one, on Youtube? very interesting indeed.

Hi mate,

Thanks for that, and yes it could be, but the complete set of wings? Could they also be from the unfinished one?
Cheers
