Martín Mars flying boat, seen at it's mooring on a lake on Vancouver Island. The red and white livery belongs to the air tanker/water bomber company that operates the Mars fighting forest fires each year. They are amazing aircraft to watch in action.
Theese are NOT viking runes. They are an older Rune alphabet, from around year 500 and earlier. They are called the elder futhark. The viking Rune alphabets have usually only 16 runes and there are several different alphabets from that time.
