A converted McDonnell Douglas DC-10-10, dubbed the Super Tanker by conversion business 10 Tanker STC, has been issued a multiple use supplemental type certificate by the US Federal Aviation Administration approving modification of the aircraft for firefighting. The former American Airlines aircraft has been converted by the Victorville, California company for owner Omni Air International and Cargo Conversions following three years of development.
