Nice indeed. A little plug for Canadair is in order I think. Made in Canada CL-415. Most of ours are still the older inferior CL-215,

I think that plane is designed to reload water by skimming so it can get back fighting the fire without stopping. Nice video.

Cool! I saw something similar with a PBY back in the 80'ies, but not at all that close!
