I believe the this is the one going to Florida as the other one has red tail, from Wikipedia:

Philippine Mars - JRM-1 BuNo 76820, delivered to the USN on 26 June 1946 and assigned to VR-2 at NAS Alameda, California. Converted and re-designated JRM-3. Withdawn from service on 22 August 1956 and sold in 1959, it was converted to forest fire fighting aircraft and registered CF-LYK (later C-FLYK). The aircraft continued to fly with Coulson Group at Sproat Lake, British Columbia, Canada until its retirement in 2012. Will become a museum display at the National Naval Aviation Museum.
