Currently working up in Idaho, and got to tour this bad ass Air Tanker. Check it out. It holds 11,000 gallons of retardant, and it needs a smaller airplane it front of it to lead it into fires.

    Ya, it was massive inside of it. They only had a picnic table strapped down to the floor on the inside, just a gutted Comercial airliner with a huge tank on the bottom.
