Russian Air Tanker


Santa Barbara News-Press: "A Russian-made Altair Be-200 air tanker makes a 3,000-gallon water drop in a demonstration of the aircraft's firefighting capabilities at the Santa Maria Airport on Tuesday. The show marked the tanker's U.S. debut on a promotional trip dreamed up by David Baskett, founder of the defunct Pacific Skyway airline and president of American Ethanol Inc. He hopes to attract enough business in the future to base 10 of the aircraft in Santa Maria.
