Awesome video! Thanks for sharing! & Thank You to all the aviation & non-aviation Firefighters, Police, State Troopers, Medics for your devotion to keep all safe.

This has got to be a tough piece of flying: the change in weight and center of gravity has to be a real challenge.Not to mention the deceleration from the resistance of the water being scooped up.

These pilots do work hard for their flight pay and we all thank them for it. BTW - This video has been viewed on Facebook over 186,000 times and shared 1,100 times. (That's a lot.)

At 0:56 I can see water being ejected from just below the wing. Is this tank overflow?
Amphicat
That is correct sir.

Outstanding video and flying!!! That is one way to disprove the old saying "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink! Wanna bet??? Drink or swim!
