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.
