747 Used to fight fires

提交時間:

This not the Evergreen B747-100. It is a later model B747-400. I believe Global Super Tanker Services acquired the firefighting tank and drop system from Evergreen and then installed it in a 744.

McClellan Air Base (ex-AF) is jumping with this 747, DC10, Bac146, C130 tankers... had an old DC7 for awhile, too... been fun to watch but sad about the fires... Oak, Madrone, Digger Pine, Manzanita forests going up like bombs... has been just a matter of time before fires like this hit...

Seems a great idea with the high retardant capacity, but why is this posted 7 months after? There have been many more fires more recently, so are the 747s still being utilized? I hope so since another serious fire season is forecast!
