Video of DC-10 air tanker in Australia

We have not heard very much about air tanker 911, the DC-10, since it arrived in Australia on December 14 to evaluate its effectiveness on bush fires. But we do know that in early January it received certification from the Australian regulatory authorities to operate in the country.

The Country Fire Authority recently put together a fact sheet and this video about the aircraft.

(THE VIDEO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

Here are some photos of Air Tanker 911 down under, courtesy of the Country Fire Authority.
