Landing on the Istan reservoir, presumably for a training run, the aircraft scouted the valley then 'divebombed' towards the water and landed then departed within about 30 seconds, it repeated about 10 times. Not a bad view from our villa!

A very well-timed shot during a crucial phase of flight. I believe this to be a CL-415, as it has turboprops.

Its a CL215T (converted from Radials to TP) Great picture!

It was not converted, the new models came from the factory with turbines.

This is a nice shot of the CL6B11-215T sitting on the keel step for scooping. This aircraft was retrofitted from radial R2800 engines to PW123AF turbines. This has the same engines as the CL415 but started out as a CL215.

Yup... Pictures of this airframe sporting radial engines are easily found by clicking the reg or serial number link in the remarks. Fantastic airframe, looks fun!
