Third DC-10 air tanker under construction

Part of tank for Tanker 912
About one-third of the retardant tank that will be fitted onto Tanker 912, the DC-10 that is being converted for 10 Tanker Air Carrier.

10 Tanker Air Carrier has posted some photos on their web page of their third DC-10 air tanker that is under conversion. They expect it will be complete by mid-summer. The aircraft has been added to the exclusive use contract, along with Tankers 910 and 911.

Below is a really shaky cell phone video of one of the DC-10s dropping on the Miguelito Fire at Camp Pendleton in southern California, May 16, 2014.
