Global SuperTanker Services highly-modified 747 water bomber has now received US Government approval to fight wildfires by the Department of Agriculture.

The giant air tanker can carry 19,200 gallons of water or fire retardant, which is over the US Forest Service’s current limit of 5,000 gallons for aerial firefighting. This means that at the moment, the Global Supertanker is restricted to operating in California or one county in Colorado.
