Posted by jhadmin

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – The Global SuperTanker - the largest, fastest, and most technologically advanced aerial firefighter in the world - has received interim approval from the U.S. Interagency Airtanker Board (IAB) to fight fires in the United States.

However, IAB approval is only a first step; the SuperTanker does not currently have a contract with the United States Forest Service (USFS) to fight fires, and pending contracts for large aerial tankers exclude tankers the size of the SuperTanker.
