This nose section is from the uncompleted 8th 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. Photo by Hans van der Vlist.
