As many of you know, the Global Supertanker has been active for about 20 days at South-america, fighting the biggest fire in the Chilean territory. I have been following the official account of Global SuperTanker at Twitter, Vimeo and all the stuff being uploaded at Instagram. Now I have a growing insterest and admiration for this B744.
It has to be a quite experience to see this big boy in action, flying low to drop water and other chemicals to stop the fire. Here some footage:

Today, the aircraft returned to his base at Colorado Springs. I was following that flight on FlightRadar24, the flight made above 10 hours.
