Super Scoopers land in LA from Canada

- The Super Scoopers have landed in LA.

The large water tankers are on lease from Quebec and will be stationed at the LA County Fire Department's tanker base at Van Nuys Airport.

The water-dropping planes will stay in LA for at least 90 days as LA firefighters use them to battle fires in the area.

The fire department has not purchased its own Super Scoopers because the chief said it is cheaper to lease them.
