Those CL 415s are great water bombers. They sometimes operate off the lake where I live. Fun to watch.

Saw a handsome row of 415's and 215's recently in front of the plant where they're manufactured at the Quebec City airport. Assume the 215's were in for repairs etc. Only learned yesterday that Canadair was part of the Bombardier group of companies.

I always hated when the Ducks would show up on my fire that I was happily bucketing on. We'd usually get parked and those bastards would barge in and put the fire out......

This is an attitude you usually do not want to see a flight simulator in...

I'd rather have those guys in the simulator doing that to being in the back of a 737 etc., with the pilots trying to recover from that.

I got to tryout the CJ1 full motion simulator at SIMCOM in Orlando. It is truly a neat device.......

The guys on the ground call them the overtime killers. When they fly lots the engineers do rather well

Here's the real "overtime killer"! Iv'e seen it operate in person and it is impressive to say the least. !!,600 gallons per drop.
