A visitor from United States posted Thu October 20, 2011:
shouldn’t it be time to look at the Dash Eight as replacements tot eh aging fire fighting fleet?
From what I read about it, the plane can haul 2,600 gallons of slurry, foam, or water. Add in the DeHaviland’s famous short field capabilities {Especially in the 100 and 200 series} and a low stall speed and you have a very effective aircraft, and a very modern one depending on version of the family one would convert, but they have items in them that the FAA requires in airliner aircraft such as GPWS {Ground Proximity Warning System}, TCAS. Even a twenty year old Dash 8-100 packing a 1,500 gallon carrying capacity would be a breath of fresh air. And the best part is, you can find them for cheap in the Deserts in airline boneyards, Alot cheaper then the plan that was around last summer of Uncle Sam spending 2.5 Billion on NEW C-130′s especially for the Forest Service. As anybody heard about Neptune and their modification of a Dash 8 Q-300, I know everybody is in love with that jet, but it just seems to me that the Dash 8 or even a SAAB 340 outfitted would be a pair of good medium to light heavy tankers.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed September 2, 2009:
I was working the tower in North Bay ON Canada while DeHavilland was testing a Q400 like this one. Many many high-speed taxi runs were done down the 10 000ft runway to test buffeting at the opened rear door. They were testing to see if smoke jumpers could operate from the aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 3, 2007:
The airline I work for flies quite a few Q400's. I love seeing it in this conversion. Great timing of the action in my opinion.
