The mighty "Red Tail" Hawaii Marten Mars water bomber. In severe forest fire years, the provinces of Canada regularly send their trained fire fighters and equipment to help other provinces in need (and send the bill later, of course).

The little boat says "Ottawa" on the back, as in Ottawa, Ontario, the capital city of Canada.

MARTIN MARS - by 1963 there were only two A/C left. Today only one A/C is still in limited service, based out of Sproat Lake on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, just outside of Port Alberni. http://www.martinmars.com/aircraft.htm

ONTARIO FOREST FIRE MAP - this is the worst forest fire year in Ontario in 50 years, and it is only half way through August, eclipsing the the big fire "flap" year of 1980 when I fought forest fires.
