The tanks of the Canadair CL 415 are filled in flight while skimming over the water surface via two hydraulically operated scoops, located aft of the hull step ... With the Aircraft skimming over a distance of 1,340m (including safe clearance heights), the water tanks can be filled in 12 seconds by the scoops! For safe scoop-filling operations, for example from a lake, the water should have a depth greater than 1.40m !!!!!!
