What a beautiful aircraft! Great shot with the mountains in the background. Would love to one retro-fitted with turbines to take them into the future! Probably too expensive though.

What an airCRAFT

Thanks for an amazing shot, what a work horse! To the UK visitor asking about trim, I imagine such aircraft are designed with the tank's centre very close to the the C of G, just like the fuel tanks. Avoids any 'upset'. The trickiest bit would be power management.

Great picture of a very rare aeroplane doing what it was built (OK, converted) to do. Does anyone know how dumping all that water affects the trim? It must be quite tricky maintaining control? Similarly, loading 30 tons in under 30 seconds must mean quite a high crew workload I guess?

This picture portrays the beauty of a truly magnificent example of engineering at work.

I am still amazed that those seemingly small engines are producing enough thrust for that huge plane to fly. Really nice shot!

Very rare great airplane! And a photo is good too: colorful craft contrasts with a faded background, timing is excellent! My congratulations, wanna see more!
