‘Super Scoopers’ Visiting Delta County Airport

Two Canadair CL-415, better known as “Super Scoopers”, made their way to Delta County Airport Monday evening. The Super Scooper is designed and built as a water bomber for aerial firefighting.

The amphibious aircraft can scoop up to 1600 gallons of water from a nearby water source and drop it off on a fire. 
Each airplane is managed by two pilots and two mechanics. There are only four CL-415 in the United States.

Their stay in Escanaba is unspecified.
