Has anyone got John Howards E-Mail address? We could send him that. Wheather he likes it or not would be another Question.

 

I think the Australian Government should look at buying this Aircraft especially with the way that the Fires are burning in Tasmania, Western Australia and also the fire I was just at in North Eastern Victoria and Gippsland.

 

There are many Pros and Cons for the Airport. Some of them that I noted from the Presentation include

 

Pros

 

Largest Amount of water dropped of any Aircraft

 

Segmented Drop

 

Able to fly close to the Ground to Drop

 

The amount of Area that it can cover with 1 Tank of water

 

Cons

 

Large amount of Water Usage (especially with water and how short it is here in Australia)

 

The time to refill the Fuel and Water

 

What does everyone say?
