The greenies won't let you use sea water on bush fires.

Baby seals are much better fire retardants, anyway. The only hitch is that bloody chunks of flesh clog up the scoop intake eventually, although a quick flush out with DDT usually does the trick.

A Canadian company was touring Casa water bombers back in the early ninties trying to sell their product. Conducted a demonstration at NAS Nowra at the time picking up water out of Jervis Bay and spreading the load on the western pad. Looked quite impressive at the time.
