Canadair CL-415

The French “Sécurité Civile” took delivery of the first CL-415 on the 9th February 1995. It was immediately distinguishable thanks to the fins mounted on the wingtips and the additional fins on the tail. However the biggest difference over its propeller powered predecessor the 215 was the two new turboprop engines. The efficiency and rapidity of the Canadair is due to the fact that it can reload with water on the nearest available sheet of water, in which case the water is scooped in by hydroplaning at a speed of 110kph.
