Martin Mars water bomber....

This plane is going to be used to combat the wildfires...check it out in this video...thank you to our Canadian friend bringing one down...



via canada.com:

"The water bomber will likely be put to work covering homes and structures with a protective covering called Thermo-Gel, which consists of 98 per cent water and a super-absorbent polymer. Fighting the fires right now is just too difficult, said Coulson.

"There's not a hell of a lot you can do with a 60-mph wind and fire coming at you other than just gelling homes to protect as many as you can," he said."
