B747-400 SUPERTANKER

The B747-400 SuperTanker is the true “Next Gen” air tanker. It joins the world's fleet of aerial firefighting tankers not only as the youngest VLAT (VERY LARGE AIR TANKER) but with almost twice the capacity of the next largest aerial tanker.

Convair will supply flight crews and support personal over the period of the contract. Other duties, such as dispatch and management, will be performed by Australians. Along with two Skycrane's and other local assets, this will constitute by far the largest aerial firefighting force ever assembled in the country.
