VLAT Air tanker

The DC-10 can carry 11,600 gallons of retardant, about six times more than the P2V air tanker which comprises 8 of the 9 large air tankers currently active under long term contracts. The DC-10 is a call when needed contract by the U.S. Forest Service, rather than a full-time exclusive use contract. More info about the DC-10
