File Description:
Sproat Lake is in the middle of southern Vancouver Island, 6 miles west of the town of Port Alberni and 30 miles directly south of Comox Valley Airport. It is some 14 miles long and around the eastern shores has a large number of houses with docks and boats. Plus, in the offshoot called Upper Sproat Lake, it has the Sproat Lake Tankerbase CAA9, home to two rather large Martin Mars firefighting planes. Their history is interesting, and their capacity for carrying water for dousing forest fires during the summer months has kept them in use since their construction in the 1940's. They have finally been retired from fighting fires in 2013, having been first retired from military service in 1958. This scenery is made for use with Ultimate Terrain; there was another version made several years ago which either predated or ignored UT. This scenery is for the month when a Mars was being repainted before retiring to a museum as a military plane, date unkown but perhaps 2013? If it is a time when there were three in existance then it is sometime in the 1960's; take your pick. Because of hills adjacent to the lake the landing of the AI Mars may or may not take place, depending on wind direction and whether or not it flies into rock before landing. Take off and departure seem to be more reliable than landing on a daily basis. The Mars flies to Vancouver Harbour, but only in theory; it does not land and park as there is no parking available for such a large aircraft. The AI follows in the second post.
