The Canadair CL-215 is the first aircraft designed as a water bomber for firefighting. It is the most famous aircraft of this type, to the point that in France, Canadair has become synonymous with water bomber plane. The CL-215 was designed in Canada by Canadair (currently Bombardier Aerospace) and manufactured 125 copies between 1966 and 1989, exported to a dozen countries. (source Wikipedia)
