Canada could build several Mars Bomber replicas and deploy strategically across the country covering zones.
Critics pointed to the refueling challenge of the old Mars but a new ground landing plane wouldn’t be restricted. Loading water from our numerous large lakes would be simple as would adding the retardant bombers which have had incredible success in fire fighting in British Columbia.
I lived around the point on Sproat Lake and observed their fighting skills first hand.
Wayne Coulson offered it to the BC government but they rejected it as being too costly.
