Martin JRM-1 Mars

This would be 76823, the “Hawaii Mars.”  It, of course, is still in service today as a fire bomber with Coulson Flying Tankers in British Columbia.  (Seen it flying past a time or two.)  The logbook is from a JRM crewman who flew in this very aircraft in the 40’s – 15.1 hours Alameda-Honolulu.
