Here's some interesting news:
In the latest Air International (May`96) there is a blurb about
Conair Aviation (BC, Canada) seriously thinking of converting a
737-200 into a water bomber.

I would be curious to know where the tanks and their doors would
be located since th emain gear occupies a significant portion of
the belly area.

Perhaps in 20 years there'll be a re-make of that `water bombing' film
`Always' with a Holly Hunter type actress boldly piloting her 767 water
bomber down Fire Creek Canyon?
