Aircraft for the Future

With the aging Wildland Air Tanker Fleet, more of the USA sees the need not being met when current tankers become non air worthy. I believe this should be a National Fleet including Water Scooping CL-415's that are 'loaned' and managed by other Government agencies. MN DNR has two aging CL-215's that will never be replaced by the state. But it the Federal Government owned the planes, I believe MN would be interested in managing 2 or more just have they have for their own fleet (which are carded and available Nationally all the time). I believe a combination of various government entities could manage a whole fleet of Type 1 & 2 Air Tankers.
