Runway Cleanup? :-)

Nice photo, Vladimir! Perfect clarity and rare moment: looks like this 'firekiller' is using an additional steam power for take-off :) /o.b.

That seems like it would mess with the ground effect and aerodynamics of the plane causing it to lose lift so close to the ground.

Great photo! It's not a runway cleanup, it's a training flight; if an engine fails the crew needs to drop water immediately in order to reduce takeoff/landing weight.
