Cover: Its seldom quite as peaceful at the Martin Airport as it seems to be in the picture on this month’s cover. What with final installations, ground testing, flight testing and the numerous other activities, the Airport is on the jump all day long and far into the night. Photo by Lee Dougherty. The drawing on the back cover is by John Gorsuch, Art Department, and is the first of a series picturing Martin planes — pictures uniform in size and reproduction, suitable for framing. The Mars will be on the back of October STAR. ……. Articles Inside: … Flyin’ Man ( O. E. “Pat” Tibbs ) ….. You Can Help! …..
