Do you mean something like this. (Again Corsica 2005)




EXACTLY like that, yes.  :thumbsup:

Barrow = castrated male pig (or Boss Hogg after he upset Lulu one time too many).

So it's a Firebarrow...

I'd say white with the orange belly as it seems to be a common paint schema for fire bombers.

Well I now have the required inspiration for the colour scheme.
Two of these came through Prestwick arrived three days ago and departed the next day.
I did not see them  :banghead: but I got the photo off the Prestwick airport movements site. http://www.egpk.com/

What an excellent scheme that is!  :thumbsup:

I didn't know Buffalo operated CL215s.

They sure do Kit - there were a few episodes of Ice Pilots NWT where they ferried a pair to Greece(Turkey?) and had "issues" along the way. Real must-see footage for any 215 fan and a personal highlight for that season.

I was going to say it's a CL215 not a Buffalo!
