From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: On 25 August 1950, Convair issued a formal proposal for a swept-winged version of the B-36 with all-jet propulsion. The United States Air Force was sufficiently interested that on 15 March 1951, the USAF authorized Convair to convert two B-36Fs (49-2676 and 49-2684) as B-36Gs. Since the aircraft was so radically different from the existing B-36, the designation was soon changed to YB-60.
The world's last two Martin Mars are operated by Coulson Flying Tankers based at Sproat Lake, near Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. Built just as WWII came to end, the two Mars are highly effective fire fighting aircraft that have worked the BC coast since the late 1950s. Being the world's last operational examples of the great flying boat era, the Mars attract attention everywhere. In January, 2008, Hawaii Mars C-FLYL was based in Vancouver Harbour for the annual Truck Loggers convention held at Canada Place. The Mars flew daily wowing crowds with a water drop right in front of Canada Place attracting extensive media coverage. Airline videographer Henry Tenby had exclusive access and filmed this historic visit using broadcast cameras.
