1938 Short Mayo Composite. A piggy-back arrangement comprising the Short S.21 Maia (bottom) and S.20 Mercury (top) flying boats, designed for long-distance transatlantic flights. Both aircraft together would attain operational altitude, at which point Mercury would detach and continue to the destination. It was hoped this would negate the need for extra fuel tanks, which used up valuable passenger space on existing Empire flying boats.

Racing To Mars - The second JRM-1 Mars, christened Philippine Mars, is flown over Pimlico Racetrack in Baltimore during its first flight from the Martin plant in Middle River, Maryland, on 21 September 1945. The Mars was the US Navy’s largest-ever flying boat. Five JRM-1s and one JRM-2 were built. Assigned to VR-2 at NAS Alameda, California, the Mars fleet was used to carry personnel, Korean War wounded, blood plasma, and other high priority cargo before being retired in 1956.
