    Just could`nt hold it til ya landed, could you!

    Also, it is a well known fact that urine dropped at a high altitude will always form into the shape of a javilin. Something to do with the yellow food dye in pee or something like that.

    What exactly is it that they`re dropping? just water or the plane`s septic tank? Because I would hate to be living below that plane when it decides to take a dump.

    That`s a lot more water than what`s in the septic tank. It`s a tanker. (Notice there are no windows.)

    "That`s a lot more water than what`s in the septic tank. It`s a tanker. (Notice there are no windows.)"

    Nope, it is a commercial 747. You can see the windows in the blue strip if you look closely. It is alot of water, but what you are seeing is a mixture of several things all happening at once. Firstly, if you spill a cup of milk, it looks like alot, but its only a cup of milk. Same thing, but with the altitude the water expands as it freezes (check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8Hy1Pxyk...

    @ MildCorma

    OldOllie was right. The plane IS a tanker. Check out..... http://www.avweb.com/avwebflash/leadnews... . These planes are made to be used as water bombers for forest fires, and they are called the Evergreen "Supertankers".

    P.S. Before trying to spout out that you are a know-it-all and someone is wrong, be sure to do some research so that what you are talking about is really correct. Just a thought.....

    P.S.S. The link I posted contains a picture of the same plane that is in the video.

    Guys, PLEASE start using the thing between your ears....

    Theres a link to a video that explains exactly what this plane is AT THE END OF THIS VIDEO!

    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0f09556e0...

    It is a super tanker and has been converted by Evergreen International. Hell they even have a website about it:

    you guys are dumb if you think they just dump the septic tank while theyre flying.

    this is obviously for wildfires.

    Planes are NOT emptied in mid flight. Poses a saftey risk.

    This video shows a supertanker for forest fires. It was a plane converted to hold water. They were doing a demonstration in this video.

    Imagine THAT landing on your windshield.

    We need these for more wildfires. They`d be better than the the comparable teeny helicopters that do it...

    surely you `we need these for wildfires!!` people realize that the water they drop at such altitudes/speeds vaporize instantly and pretty much become a cloud...right?

    Yes, TKD, but it would be so nice if we could use those (closer to the ground). The helicopter ones used most often don`t seem like enough.
    We need to find a way to have these giant water things and make them work. (If they don`t already...)

    dragonshadoz "We need these for more wildfires. They`d be better than the the comparable teeny helicopters that do it..."

    Actually, we need both because each has advantages over the other. Fixed-wing tankers can carry more water on average, but they can`t fly as slowly or maneuver as well, so they can`t deliver it as accurately as a chopper. Also, fixed-wing tankers must return to an airfield to refill. A fully loaded 747 needs a 10,000` runway to take off, and the nearest one of those might be hundreds of miles from the fire.

    Helicopters, on the other hand, can refill by lowering a siphon hose or a bucket into a small lake near the fire. So while each load is smaller than the tanker`s, it can make several drops before it needs to refuel, and that can be done from a tanker truck parked near the fire. The down side to choppers is that they are MUCH more expensive to purchase and operate, and fewer pilots can fly them.

    @OldOllie

    I don`t know what they`re called or what type of plane they are, but Australian bushfire-fighting planes scoop water up as they fly low over a lake, air pressure sucks it in somehow. I`ve seen it in real life and its just magical the way the water seems to leap into them. So no, not all planes have to return to base to reload.
