From Wikipedia on the Infamous Supertanker aka Rockefeller's favorite little toy.

The Evergreen Supertanker is a Boeing 747-200 commercial airliner that was modified into an aerial firefighting aircraft by Evergreen International Aviation. With a capacity of 24,000 US gallons (94,850 litres), the Supertanker is the largest aerial firefighting aircraft in the world, almost doubling the capacity of the next largest firefighting tanker aircraft, a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 known as Tanker 910.[1] The Supertanker entered service for the first time in 2009, fighting a fire in Cuenca, Spain.[2] The tanker made its first American operation on August 31, 2009 at the Oak Glen Fire. [3][4]


Development started after the 2002 fire season, which saw the fatal crashes of two airtankers in the USA. The accidents, involving a Lockheed C-130A Hercules and a Consolidated PB4Y-2, prompted the U.S. Department of Interior to issue an official Request for Information on next-generation airtankers.[5]

Evergreen proposed to convert up to four of its Boeing 747-200 Freighters into massive 'Supertankers'. The first converted Boeing 747 (N470EV) made its maiden flight on February 19, 2004.[5] The current Supertanker is N479EV, a 747-100.[6]

By June 2006, Evergreen had spent $40 million on the project and was hopeful of both FAA certification, and an evaluation contract from the US Forest Service[7]

An issue that impacted usage by the Forest Service was the USFS requirement for using fire retardant rather than water. When Evergreen attempted to convert the system from water dispensing to retardant, they encountered objections from the FAA. The FAA's issue related to the much greater density of fire retardant and the corresponding increased stress on the airframe thus delaying the FAA certification. The FAA determined that the Supertanker's service life would be much less and raised concerns about dangers of stress during firefighting operations and heavy weight maneuvering.
[edit] Design

Unique technology is used on the Evergreen Supertanker in order to allow an aircraft as large as a 747 to carry out aerial fire fighting.

Also, because of its size, it becomes more cost effective to outfit a single plane with capabilities such as advanced GPS navigation and forward looking infrared (FLIR) capabilities, which could lead to the ability to perform nighttime operations and more accurate drops in specific areas.

The supertanker can also fly at speeds around 600 mph, allowing it to reduce response times to hot spots.

Current fire fighting aircraft use a gravity drop system. Doors in the underside of the aircraft open, allowing the contents of the tanks to discharge. This type of system requires an aircraft to fly very low, typically 200ft above ground level.

The Evergreen Supertanker has a pressurized system. This can disperse retardant under high pressure, for an overwhelming response, or drop retardant equivalent to the speed of falling rain. This system allows the aircraft to operate within its design criteria.[1]

Using the pressurized system, the aircraft can deliver retardant to the scene of a fire whilst flying at a height of 400 to 800ft, at approximately 140kts (160mph) (260kph), configured as if it were on approach for landing. Unfortunately, there have been problems deciding whether to configure the aircraft for dispensing water or fire retardant.

The Evergreen Supertanker’s tank system can be configured for segmented drops, allowing the contents of the tank to be released at multiple intervals while in flight.[1] According to the company, the aircraft is capable of laying down a swath of fire retardant three miles (5 km) long and as wide as an American football field.[8]
[edit] Operation

The Supertanker can operate from any aerodrome with an 8,000ft long runway and suitable facilities. Evergreen has identified several airports across the US and claim that 80% of US airports meet or exceed the criteria.[1] Currently the first tanker in North America is under a CWN (call when needed) contract with Cal Fire and is stationed at McClellan Field outside of Sacramento, California.[8]

Evergreen Aviation is studying other applications for the Supertanker. Oil spill containment, chemical decontamination and weather modification are being considered. Also, regulations allow for five individuals that are not crewmembers to be carried in the upper deck. This area could be used for command and control, mapping, incident monitoring and video/communications operations.[9]

Utilizing a smaller fleet of large supertankers means potential for savings from reduced staff, maintenance,flight missions and hours flown.

Oh, yeah protecting valuable resources all right.  Isn't that what depopulation is all about.
