C-GKUG demonstrating the advantages of large air tankers to Australian forest fire authorities in 1984. At the time there was a lot of resistance to heavy tankers, the preference being swarms of cropdusters and helicopters. However large tankers, up to DC-10 size, are now part of the air assets assembled for annual fire season. They are chartered from US and Canadian operators.
A former Royal Navy Sea Prince on display in the SWWAPS Museum in very questionable condition and in strange blue paint. The museum closed down not long after this photo was taken, in November 2009. This aircraft was dismantled and trucked to Wycombe Air Park at Booker that same month, for temporary storage. On 11 July 2013 it moved on to Horizon Aircraft Services at St Athan, where it was scrapped for spares in Sep 2014.
