Nice one sladys!

But they’re not air/sea rescue; that’s a helicopter function these days. They are Canadair water bombers, used throughout the Mediterranean for fighting forest files. I’ve often watched them practicing water pickup on the Bay of St. Tropez. Most impressive! There are four in GE, at

41°47'41.72"N 12°35'34.06"E

I was fascinated to see that when going backward or forward a frame in Streetview the five planes are not there! Perhaps Google cars do time travel too??
