    I would really be interested to know how a road-grader got tangled up with a semi truck...

    Saw that video a while back, it was said to be in northern Alberta, 50 miles from a fire truck. That 415 Superscooper carries 6000 litres of water! That's like 1300 US gallons or thereabouts.
    Loads in 12 seconds from pretty small lakes. It and the older 215 are the only purpose-built water bombers being built in the world.
