Cal Fire / CDF S-2T Water Drop / Wings Over Wine Country Airshow 2008

Cal Fire / CDF S-2F water drop. The S-2F is one of the most cost effective and maneuverable fire fighting aircraft. It's small size and turbo-prop engines allow it to operate from airfields ranging from commercial to small municipal runways. The S-2F can maneuver and fly slow enough to make accurate drops where the larger tankers can't safely navigate.
