The L-188 Electra is one of the most effective large capacity or “heavy” air tankers for the control of wild fires. The L-188 Electra is fast, maneuverable and capable of carrying 3000 gallons of fire retardant. The four turbine engines of this aircraft ensures it has tremendous power and range to fight distant fires and the most extreme conditions. Coupled with the computerized constant/variable flow RADS II tank, the performance of the L-188 Electra is unsurpassed by any other turbine-powered air tanker.
Bulkley Valley Water Bomber Watch
New for 2023
With so many fires messing up photos we thought adding a section for water bombers my be of interest to you.
As of Feb 21st 2022 we have well over 3000 photos covering primarily Northern British Columbia.
Our photos are not pro grade, they never were intended to be they are there for anyone to enjoy browsing through the images we captured over the last few years.
We have tried to break down the folders to keep subject matter separated, we used large thumbnails to make finding images easy, and inside we have high resolution mostly mapped photos.
