World's largest firefighting airplane aids effort to douse California wildfires

The Boeing 747-400 Supertanker is fighting the massive wildfires in Northern California. It can drop more than 19,000 gallons of retardant at a maximum speed of 600 mph. The aircraft, which first flew for Japan Airlines in 1991, was converted into a tanker last year. The plane can fly anywhere in the U.S. in under three hours and anywhere in the world in less than 20.
