After seeing these unusal versions of an Air Tractor from the Train, I decided to walk around the perimeter of Sabadell Airport to see if I could get a closer look at these aircraft. Fitted with floats they are used for fire bombing (Bomberos del aire) during the summer months. Having spoken to one of the pilots at the Airports Cafe (recommended - great food - great prices), the aircraft is very different to handle than the normal Air Tractor with the floats fitted and therefore extra drag.
