This nose section is from the uncompleted eighth Martin Mars airframe, which would have become BuNo 76825 of the United States Navy. It was acquired by Forest Industries Flying Tankers in the 1960s and stored at their Sproat Lake base near Port Alberni, BC. It lay there in the brush for some 40 or 45 years until it was recovered by its new owners Coulson Flying Tankers in 2007. They restored it into their red and white colours and placed it on display in their visitor centre at Sproat Lake. Photo by: Hans van der Vlist
