How come with all the forest fires that the USA does not use the IL76 heavy lift firefighting aircraft? The Air Tanker Board a civilian group has managed to keep the newest largest and best aircraft out of use in the USA as it would cut into their profits. Fires are big money and for the ATB flying planes at 6000 per hour delivering 500 gallons they do not want a big plane coming in delivering 11,000 gallons that would put the fires out to fast and cut into profits. 12 football fields in one pass or one tree at a time. Someone needs to look at this. The USA could really use Global Emergency Response and those big planes. It is sad when disaster is more about profit for a few companies in Idaho and less about saving our forests and peoples homes. The whole world uses the IL-76 and it was credited with Saving Athens, but in the US it is more about profits for insiders and less about actually getting things done ASAP. Look it up IL -76 waterbomber a strategic approach to saving forests.
