Canadair CL-215

A Canadair CL-215 (Bombardier) firefighting aircraft of the Hellenic Air Force on a training mission over the Evian Gulf, Greece.

The CL-215 is a versatile aircraft capable of several configurations such as maritime patrol and search and rescue, in addition to its primary role as a water bomber. It is a twin-engine, high-wing aircraft designed to operate well at low speed and in gust-loading circumstances, as are found over forest fires. It is also able to land and take off from short, unpaved airstrips. In Europe they are known as "Canadairs." In Canada and other countries they are known as "Ducks" or "Scoopers."
