AirVenture To Debut Martin Water Bomber »

The Martin Mars water bomber, the largest airplane of its kind and the last in its line, will make its first-ever appearance at EAA AirVenture in July, EAA has announced. The bomber will be based at the EAA Seaplane Base, on Lake Winnebago. With a wingspan of about 200 feet, and measuring 120 feet nose to tail, the massive airplane is one of only six that were built. "There aren't many airplanes that have never been to Oshkosh, but this is one of them," said EAA's Rick Larsen. More
