ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Two Canadair CL-415, better known as “Super Scoopers," made their way to Delta County Airport Monday evening.

The Super Scooper is designed and built as a water bomber for aerial firefighting. The amphibious aircraft can scoop up to 1600 gallons of water from a nearby water source and drop it off on a fire.

Each airplane is managed by two pilots and two mechanics. There are only four CL-415 in the United States. Their stay in Escanaba is unspecified.
