Martin Mars to Oshkosh

Kermit Weeks has posted some interesting photographs to his Facebook page documenting yesterday's flight of the Martin Mars from Sproat Lake, Vanvouver Island to Oshkosh, Wisconsin....

Clicking through the photographs, I see comment from Kermit that he flew the takeoff from Sproat Lake. One of the photographs taken during the flight shows Kermit at the controls in the right-hand seat with the left-hand seat empty. I love his comment about “this being a scary sight!” Lucky bugger!!
