Military planes fight forest fires

The Conair Firecat owned by the Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley is part of a fleet of repurposed aircraft: military planes that fight forest fires.

The former torpedo bay is a large fire retardant tank. The picture shows the plane dropping stuff to slow the fire, or even put it out - a wise use of resources, as the Girl Guides say.
