A Pilot's pilgrimage
During World War II, Max Mason piloted a "flying boat" -- the Martin PBM Mariner. The unique amphibious aircraft served as a long-range patrol bomber and rescue aircraft for decades through WWII and the Korean War, before finally coming to rest in Tucson. The last of its kind is on display at the Pima Air & Space Museum.
On a spring day, Mason and his family make the pilgrimage from their home in Fresno, Calif., to see this key part of the veteran's past. The experience stirs Mason's memories, and his love for flying machines. Click here to watch the video.
