President Trump just tweeted about the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, and suggested "flying water tankers" could help put it out.

"Must act quickly!" Trump tweeted.

Well, there is no other water supply to put it out. So it burns.

Because there are water tanker aircraft at the ready in case the Forest du Paris catches on fire.

Just read where there is no water nearby for the fire department to use to help. I don’t know about aircraft tankers being nearby.

That's really a shame. Beautiful building.

Because putting out a raging ancient wood fire that's already fucked the building is obviously the immediate concern of the first responders, rather than saving all the unburnt buildings around it.

You do understand that even the most modern of cities don't just have a bunch of air tankers filled with water sitting around ready to go at a moment's notice.

They could always draft from the river. Did it many times when I was on a rural volunteer FD.

Well they should.
We’ve bailed the French out too many times...they should learn to be more prepared

They may very well be doing something like that, kind of depends upon how the people there organized their fire dept, wouldn't you think.

I think Atlanta needs a fleet of snowplows, because one day a few years ago traffic got really fucked up when it snowed.

I'm just flying in, spending the night and bailing out the next day. I get it if people like it. It's just not for me.

You were being serious? :lol: :lol: :lol:

You do understand, those aircraft aren't built to put out urban fires. Are you saying all cities should have something like that?
