747 Water Bomber

Recommended Posts

Heard about this while at the HAI. If I remember correctly a figure of 20,000 gals was mentioned. I suppose 200,000 lbs would not be out of the question with a 747. Having worked around the Mars at 6,000 gals, I can't imagine the Sh..t storm this thing would produce. :wacko::blink:

OMNR: Take notice, if you intend to use this aircraft in NW Ontario, I beleive it will have to be based out of Toronto or Winnipeg.


Or the alternative is re-vamp the old SAC bases and use them for fire fighting instead of dope smuggling.


Good make work project for every body, Dalton Mc.


Great lookin airplane, put everybody out of work.


Start boycotting Boeing products.


:lol::lol::lol: :boff: :boff:

The delivery shown was from a two nozzle set up; the 747 gained 500 feet during the dump!!


A 4 nozzle delivery is currently being developed, not just for firefighting. It has been calculated it will take 3-4 of these machines to spray NYC overnight in the event of a bio-chem event :shock: You heard it here, first........
