First one is red fire retardant and second looks to be water.

Not only can they fly,but have balls of steel for still flying some of the older planes that should be retired,if i remember correctly, some of the old planes have had structural failures to the wings,and some great pilots have been lost.

The ww2 fire bombers are all but gone now.

The yellow airplane is a new design and manufacture, a Bombardier CL 415. I can't tell what the smaller photo is, but I think is a P2 Neptune, old but not ancient.

Yes some very good pilot driving these planes.

Second picture, if real, is illegal activity for a pilot but still fun.

Yep. P2 Neptune in the first picture. I just googled an image of one and found a close up of the same plane on the ground.



The second is a CL415. Here's a video of one in action.


I had the pleasure of getting a tour of the inside of one.

I believe that 2nd picture is from another country . Read the name on the back of the fire fighter . If they got stuck behind the fire line that plane may be their only hope .

They are making one big mistake .

With that plane coming in hard and fast , you should lie down on your belly facing the plane with your arms protecting your head and helping keep your helmet on . Water or retardant has a lot of force and will knock a man on his ass in that situation .
