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!!

Wow! Thanks for posting that video. Oh, to have been on that flight. I consider myself quite lucky to have gotten as close as I did to Hawaii Mars when it was up here in 2011.
