Watch this: Superscooper plane water bombing a truck

Aug 10 2013 - 4 Comments

Canadair CL-415 water bomber aircraft are not only used to support ground firefighting activities in case of forest fires.

The “Superscooper” planes can be extremely useful when you need to extinguish fire following a car crash and your firefighting trucks are several miles away.

The following video shows a CL-415 water bombing a truck who caught fire after colliding with a bulldozer on the Trans-Labrador Highway

Several Canadian Government agencies, including the Ministry of Natural Resources in Quebec and Ontario and the Department of Natural Resources in Newfoundland and Labrador operate CL-415s.
