How fast can that thing be loaded returned to mission?

Don, I used to work in a tower. We had C-130's helping fight forest fires and their turn around time was 12 minutes. This was in the late 1980s.

Paul :12 minutes ?? I m a bit suspicious.. With Canadair CL415 , may be if you are close to sea or lake.. but on ground...!!

These things are usually back in the air roughly 20 minutes after touchdown from the previous mission. That includes taxiing and refilling, and usually the tank is filled in roughly 12 minutes. It is a lot slower pumping retardant through hoses into a tanker than scooping it through a lake like a CL-415 would. (This is info I got from the crews of T02 and from my experience watching tankers in and out of my local airport.
