Default 737 Firefighting Plane

Thought you might all enjoy these pictures of this stunning aircraft, and hopefully a manufacturer will do this in 1/200 :-)

Totally with you on your suggestion. I watched this 737, help extinguish several fires in the Los Angeles area.

Thanks David, great article and picture. Must admit I hadn’t researched the background of the plane.

Cheers
Terence

I was glad to see another collector felt the same. I know that Australia has had a terrible time with fires in the past, and certainly this year. Our friends in California, they can't catch a break either. Tinder dry fuel, the smallest ignition source, followed by breathtaking destruction. Thank goodness these aircraft exist, to help the ground crews to extinguish these monsters.

Totally. As much as these are beautiful planes they are a sobering reminder of the hardships that many people have been through recently. Thoughts go out to those affected and to those who are fighting the fires.
