The Lockheed L-188C was originally developed as a “turbine engined” airliner. It paved the way for many of todays’ jet airplanes. The L-188C is a four engine heavy airtanker capable of carrying large loads of retardant at high speed to a fire. The aircraft is surprisingly maneuverable for its size and is very capable in any terrain type.
