    If I am not mistaken, that is one of the big flying boat firefighting water bombers from Canada.

    We had that thing down here on Elsinore last year they closed the lake to boats for several weeks while it was here helping with the fires. The motors can really produce some power.

    I was on Isabella one year when that came down.
    It's amazing how that thing loses speed while picking up water.
    On the exit it would barely clear the mountain tops!

    With a little retrofit, that thing would make one bad ass RV. Especially on the East/Gulf Coast with the Bahamas and Virgin Islands. I'll take two please

    Yep the crw is real friendly and talkative when they are on the ground. When they took of in Elsinore my house was right the path, 200 to 500 feet over and could hear those motors come for several minutes before it went over and shook the ground like a small earthquake.
