According to @RusEmbPeru, the Russian-made Be- 200 airtankers saved an eighteenth century mosque on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

We found these photos on Twitter of the Russian-made Be-200 amphibious scooping air tankers that have been deployed to assist with the wildfires in Indonesia. Two of them arrived in the country October 21, 2015.

  1. These were the first pics I’ve seen of the Be200 with a human standing next to it to see how big it really is. So I had to check the specs, the Be200 is bigger then the CL415 mostly by length and the Be200 is just a little smaller then the Mars, with the Mars having a larger wing span. It’s a big Russian aircraft!
