Post Water Bombers, Pinhao Portugal 
Pinhao Portugal
I just returned from a river cruise on the Douro River in Portugal. Whilst in Pinhao Portugal we encountered fires up in the hills being tackled by water bombing aircraft. They were sweeping in next to our river cruiser which was moored alongside for the night, to refill with water. The main shots are of a Canadair CL-215-1A10 built in 1974. The second was refilling further upriver (hence the higher view, and the third much smaller (not yet identified !) also refilling further upriver.

This one was refilling further upriver. Not to sure if it is the same make as the previous shots.

There were two of these also refilling further upriver. Again not sure of the make.
I am sure you guys will come back with the details.

All comments welcomed and thanks for viewing.

I bet that was a sight to witness, I am always amazed by the skills of these water bomber pilots.
