Watch a water bomber plane drop its load on a truck fire in remote Canada
As CarScoops points out, using a water bomber to put out a vehicle fire is like bringing a Howitzer to a knife fight, but due to the extremely isolated location of the accident authorities were concerned that a firetruck couldn't get to the scene in time to contain the blaze. Hence the airplane. The accident, involving a grader and semi truck didn't result in any fatalities, but it did close the remote Trans-Labrador Highway for some time.
Take a look at the full video below.
