Clearly there has to be a more attractive way of looking for water than this. Still interesting though.

Hehe, expensive fishing trip - and to imagine you have to look for water to do the fishing :D It's a nice photo though, a unique one too, and I imagine it's not that easy to catch a plane like this. Right place, at the right time.

This aircraft is used to survey the earths surface to find minerals like gold, and elements like carbon concentration or for oil or metals, it fires an electromagnetic signal into the earths surface which resonates back with information on the content. the little birdie looking thing on the belly hangs from a line on or from the back of the tail (empennage) this birdie picks up the signal and sends it to computers which are monitored by scientist and maintenance technicians. And yes it is very cool.
