One sad occurrence at Air Venture this year was damage sustained by the Martin Mars Water Bomber during an emergency water landing made because of a bird strike to one of their engines. We got to see them demo a water bomb run during the airshow but when we next saw the bomber, it was moored at the Seaplane base with bilge pumps fiercely competing in the contest to expel the water seeping in through a crack in the hull.
While disappointed for the crew of this magnificent old plane, we soldiered on through the airshow looking for fun and adventure. Check out some of our finds:
