Sorry, didn't read this months agenda minutes.

Been busy digging holes for this springs "initiates".

Why would someone make a YouTube video titled "!!!1!UFOs ARE REL BROS PROOF 100% REAL UFO VIDEO CONFIDENTIAL!!!11" ... and then it isn't real at all? 😂

When did YouTube become an infallible source?

When it agrees with my wacky view point!!!!!!!!!!

My guess is they’re converting the jet to coal power to ferry Greta Thunberg around in.

As soon as it’s done it’ll be able to drop massive amounts of SorosBucks over cities and convince people that wildfires of this magnitude are a product of a changing climate.

I read ATS though.

the ocean is hundreds of miles away from colorado and you can't use salt water like that, not unless you mind destroying the ecosystem and making it impossible to grow anything in the future. even then flying a civilian tanker all the way to Australia isn't as easy as you seem to think.

Now your talking. Soros, Besos, Gates, Rothschild and the rest all could pony up and buy just one plane each if they were even interested in helping the earth and mankind. Nah they are marching towards global population of 500 million right.

Fire is the easiest and quickest way to get those pesky humans off the planet.

Yeah, it's a totally effective way to kill off the population:

Wooo. I will go with you on that one AM.

With respect to salt water. The reservoir can be a composite, stainless steel or a plenum. Back in the day at the Nuke plant we used to manufacture ATSM 743 & ASTM 744 CN7M grade of stainless steel for manufacture of pumps and valves and piping as they would use boiling nitric acid to wash the radioactive contaminated hot equipment in the hot room such that the radiation was lowered so a human could work on it. Other than that only robots could enter the hot room.

the hot room was at the Savannah Nuclear Site NUKE

My point is that to handle salt water today is a minor engineering achievement that was already overcome decades ago.

But really?


A professor estimated this week that a billion animals had died in Australia’s wildfires. But where are these numbers coming from?


How Many Animals Have Died in Australia’s Wildfires?

So wheres Greta? Well killing a billion of CO2 generating animals is GOOD for the climate activists right?

That's nice, maybe you can start a GoFundMe to change the tanks in the current plane over to whatever material you want so they can use saltwater. Then when you're done with that you can have them change the pumps, lines and fittings as well. Hopefully it doesn't add to the down time.

Yeah, but they're all the crappy animals that no one wants, that's why they're in Australia.

Based on your posting history I'd say somewhere in your head.

It was just through maintenance in March 2019. So its back in again?


Dont know for certain about the 747, but every Military air frame is on an hourly schedule for major maintenance, you dont blow off phase or depot level maintenance and I am guessing that when it comes to fighting fires and having to fly low enough to get the water to the blaze you are looking at more than the usual amount of stress on the airframe.

I hope she will do a documentary of the amount of CO2 that out-gasses from concrete is bad for masonry and earth and must be stopped now.

So use aluminum. Its lightweight and strong and will resist saltwater. Military use it for warship hulls and aluminum boats have been around for decades.

You still can't dump tons of saltwater on land, fire or no fire.

Well, you could. As long as you're not expecting anything to grow back.

All firefighting aircraft undergo maintenance after being used in the firefighting season. They're more or less constantly in maintenance when they're not actively dropping on fires.

They've only had one DC-10 down there because the other two scheduled to go were in maintenance. The second arrives the 15th, the third the 25th.
