There are more than a dozen firefighting aircraft, these were used to transmit information in the days before radio. They were also the same aircraft that spotted fires, and dropped retardant from above. It is said that in the early days, the retardant was dumped from empty beer kegs. There are a number of other displays that make up the Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting.
