Martin Mars video

Here is a video of the 7,200-gallon Martin Mars air tanker doing some training and pilot re-currency in southern California. Some of the video was shot in infrared, probably from the lead helicopter that works with the aircraft. The audio has been disabled.

(THE VIDEO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

The Martin Mars is currently working on the La Brea fire in southern California.
