Flying the Canadair CL 415 Super Scooper

Oct 24, 2012 9 Comments by

This is outstanding! You just don’t hear much about aerial fire fighting in Europe but these Spaniards have gotten it down! Check out how low they fly over cars, roads and buildings on their way to pick-up water. The pilots are really yanking the controls around when they get close to the fire. This is probably one of the better aerial firefighting flying videos out there.

About the author

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    Great video, but those aircraft are the Bombardier 415, formerly known as the Canadair CL 415 Super Scooper. They are assembeled at the Bombardier Aerospace facility near North Bay, Ontario.

      Sorry I do not know that much about this plane, so I would have to agree with you. I just took the title that was given for it. My main focus was that this was just a really cool video :-)
      Thanks member 22717 I will change the title.

    Outstanding film work. note the amount of control input used to fly this bird. These guys have to be really wiped out after a mission.

    Here “http://alumodel.com/htm_en/productos.htm” you can buy an all metal CL415 if you have the money. I believe this is the ultimate CL415 model.

    I’d rather hear the sounds of the airplane than the lousy music, but thanks for the great video!
