    Jaybats hello,
    They're fantastic aren't they. You should hear them droaning overhead in line - slow but unstoppable. Wish they were filled with beer.

    Nice...:) that is the one that I can really recall.

    If you get really brave you might consider this beast...

    Second picture on the page.

    I wonder what the BC Dept of Forests will do when these aircraft are no longer airworthy? They are over 6 decades old now.

    The company which owned and operated them in BC has already sold them for their retirement...

    Reading the link, it seems that the Mars will remain in service for a while yet.

    What with global warming and all, I wonder if it might not make sense to dust off the drawings of this aircraft and start producing it again.

    While they're digging out the plans do the same for the Sikorsky Skycrane - in Oz we've had some Skycranes for fighting bushfires for the last few years - they get shipped to Oz in the Northern winter. The Skycranes really can have an impact on a fire.

    Thank you very much for the CL-415. I had that on my to do list of planes worthy of designing a model. Your model is so nice that I can look to other projects.

    I am very excited that you are working on a CL-215. I have two of these planes based locally and I think they are just about the neatest things in the air. Per chance, have you considered putting it in Minnesota DNR livery? I volunteer to help. I can take pictures.

    CL-415 pics

    My older brother Bill was fishing on a lake that borders Minnesota and Canada. There was a fire nearby and he had CL-415s scooping water near his boat all day. He took these pictures - the planes were mighty close!
