Normally they are here for the Fire Season.  When that ends not sure.  Not sure if LA County can lend they out either for mutual aid or not.  The Martin Mars is at Lake Elsinore.  See fencecheck.com

I saw a couple of those tankers at Van Nuys airport. Pretty big planes.   :D

Here is start of the Mars.  Not my shot and don't give me any slack for it not being my shot per say.  See me waaaay under there by the land wheels.

I like watching those airplanes fly in formation, usually around the SFV area.
