Next Generation Tankers: Coulson, Minden, and Erickson Aero Air

Because of some work being done on my house, I was sitting in the dark for much of the afternoon while the Electrician did some work on our electric service. Power now restored. Then had to take care of some other business relating to this same construction project before the end of the day. I've been meaning to post something about a couple of the Next Generation Tankers, so this seemed like a good time to do it.


Coulson recently released this video of their C-130 Next Generation Tanker doing a partial drop

Minden Air has also released a video of their BAe-146 Next Generation Tanker, which they have dubbed the Fireliner.

Minden has redesigned their webpage, and they have a webpage for their Fireliner that includes specifications. Bill Gabbert wrote about Minden's Fireliner here.
