Here is a video of the actual drop.

Compared to the existing aerial firefighting fleet, the Evergreen Supertanker will offer at least seven times more drop capability over today’s largest airtanker. This large gallonage increase gives the Supertanker an opportunity to save a substantial amount of time and money fighting fire.

The most interesting thing here is the large numbers of stored Cessna Starships. What a bust for Cessna. Every boneyard you look at is cluttered with them. What did them in was the Italian Piagio 180s. It has a similar configuration but as usual about a hundred years ahead of Cessna technology.
