Stunning photo. very impressive!

A visitor from Spain posted Wed September 7, 2011:
Fantastic. This is a great plane for the forest fires in big countries as USA or Canada. But for countries us Spain, it is not practical. Some years ago the option of use this planes in our forest fires was considered and discardted. Canadier are better for our requeriments. I am forest engineer...

A visitor from Spain posted Sat August 27, 2011:
Very good for taking a shower !!!!!

Should have used this to fight those fires in Northern Ontario!

Excellent shot 5 stars!

Sensational photo showing a very noble use of aviation

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 14, 2011:
This image has a visual 3d effect...i would have captioned it: "the 747's water just broke"

A visitor from Spain posted Thu January 20, 2011:
A very good view! Congratulations

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 21, 2010:
It is an obvious demonstration of "thinking out of the box." What a way to water ones back yard.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 21, 2010:
One of the most exciting things you can do witha 74!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Well if there is more than one of them then the time to fill is irrelevant as the others can be putting water on the fire while the others are filling. Not sure what the other tankers hold but 20K gallons is alot of water!

A visitor from France posted Mon August 9, 2010:
Very impressive and technical prowess, but I'm skeptical about the finality of this monster: How long to fill the water tanks, wich load factors apply, maneuverability ? (We have in France example of two Dash-8 conditionned: Pilots prefers CL-415 or Fire-Cat !!!) ...Probably OK for fires on flats territories, but I can't imagine this water bomber on moutains of South of Europe during summer fires ...

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 2, 2010:
Holy cow! Good one!

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 2, 2010:
This is an excellent capture. Very sharp and no errors. Excellent again!

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 2, 2010:
They just had one of these in operation for the Crown fire here in Los Angeles. They were showing it performing low level passes only a few hundred feet above the ground during it's water drop. It was surreal watching it.

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon August 2, 2010:
Nice to see this veteran still going strong !

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 2, 2010:
To the dutch poster:
They have to fill it up "manually" on the ground. Takes ages, one of the reasons why seeing this big waterbomber in real actions is an unlikely scenario.

What I'm interested in: Why on earth did they perform at Hahn Airport?? Was there some kind of Airshow? Never seem to have heard of anything..

A visitor from France posted Mon August 2, 2010:
I would guess it's filled with a pipe at the aircraft's base, which would mean quantity versus rotation rate. In France, I think the smaller planes with retardant are filled that way, ready to take off to slow down the fire, until canadairs come in action (with less water than this evergreen jumbo, but a much higher rotation rate and precision).

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat June 26, 2010:
I was just thinking,
how the hell do they get the water in this jumbo i dint think they'll skid over the water like a canadair can anyone explain?

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun May 23, 2010:
This is so much water!

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 4, 2010:
A buddy of mine is a forest fire fighter and was on the receiving end of an Evergreen jumbo jet deluge. Classic thundering aluminum overcast with the contents of a large swimming pool blasting down on your butt from above! Large compressed air tanks push out the water. Hunker down boys here she comes!

A visitor from France posted Thu January 7, 2010:
Just have to make it buoyant and maneuvering ...

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 25, 2009:
I wasn't aware that anyone had converted a 747 into a waterdrop tanker, and imagine it has a large volume, heavy load capacity.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 19, 2009:
Regarding the weight; max load is just shy of 20,000 gallons (if I remember correctly). With this volume of water, T/O weight is still well below max for the 747-200.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed August 19, 2009:
1 in a million shot. Never seen this before. Just imagine the weight of this aircraft! Very nice Rainer as usual.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 19, 2009:
Never though possible, a 747 as a Water Bomber. Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 19, 2009:

A visitor from Chile posted Wed August 19, 2009:
Is very, very good.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 19, 2009:
Whats going on with this plane? Last I heard Evergreen could not get approval to fight fires with this plane in the US.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed August 19, 2009:
Couldn't imagine this one on a European wild fire.
As a matter of fact can hardly imagine it anywhere fighting a fire, unless in a flat deserted area, like the Sahara, which unfortunately laks the timber

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 13, 2009:
