Wings of Russia is an 18-part documentary hosted by Alexander Loginov, published by Wings TV in 2008, with English narration.
Every summer news agencies report of forest fires bursting out in this or that country. Fire brings enormous damage. That is where fire extinguishing aviation can help. An airplane looks like a tiny bug against environment. Can it really help? Efficiency of the fire extinguishing aircraft becomes the main point. How much fire extinguishing liquid it can take and how quick? An amphibious aircraft has no match in this situation. Gliding over the water surface within seconds it fills up the tanks to drop tons of water on the fire source… Amphibious aircraft today are used mainly at emergency situations. But throughout their history they fought in wars, transported passengers and rescued people.
