Turboprop Water Bomber
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:39:05 PM »
this video of a CL-415 took place in Portugal and the crew was getting water from Rio Douro.
There were only 90 CL-415's built

This is video (not by me so not my fault they didn't know to turn their phone sideways) of water being dropped on a fire I was fighting a couple weeks ago.   I'm not familiar with the model of these aircraft though.   We had both of those doing circuits to a nearby lake as well as a helitack and a convair made a single trip out.   There's also a good video somewhere of them dipping from the lake.
