Holy Crap !!!!!!
Batman, we have a situation here. . .
Oh, never mind, the mounties took care of it, eh?
I saw this the other day. Its an incredibly isolated area. Fires are routinely fought this way to keep the forests from going up
This happened on the Trans Labrador Highway there are no fire fighters within a hundred miles and because the water bomber was fighting a fire in the area it was called upon to keep the surrounding forest from going up and starting another one.
It looks like a Canadair CL 215.
Crew did a nice pass.
Holy Crap is right Steve!! Sure's hell wouldn'tve wanted to be anywhere NEAR that dumpload....would've drowned on the spot, if not crushed by the weight of the water. Wow!
Wilf I thinking it may be the 415. Memory serves me correct Labrador replaced the CL215 with the updated version
Not unusual; just a Yukon car wash. Everything is "bigger" up there. :-)
