Air tanker drops

Here is a great 10-second video of Tanker 459 (AT-802) making a drop near Ronan, MT, in September, 2006. It shows the maneuverability of a single engine air tanker and the value of having a variety of tools in the aviation toolbox.

And speaking of air tankers, I don't know the source of this next one (from a movie perhaps?) this, (one of the first scenes in the movie "Always") 54-second video shows what I think is a PB4Y2 PB2-Y air tanker vs. some fishermen.

The clip is the lead-in to the movie "Always". The tanker is a PB2-Y
