One last correction (?).
If if has wheels it is amphibious.
If not, it's a flying boat.

It's a flying boat. Period. And not to 'Stein' the discussion, the 'real' meaning of amphibious is:
Etymology: Greek amphibios, literally, living a double life, from amphi- + bios mode of life
That means, IMHO, that all airplanes are amphibious. N'est pas?

Except that that most assuredly _IS_ a Martin Mars. The Canadair 415 is a twin engine aircraft with a swept vertical stabilizer--the aircraft shown was a four engined aircraft (you can see two engines on the near wing) with a non-swept vertical stabilizer--further, the color scheme is that that Flying Tankers uses on the Hawaii Mars.
It's not an SH-5--that has twin tails. Not a ShinMeiwa--that has a T-tail. I don't think there _are_ any other four-engine flying boats still in service. So that leaves the Mars.

Considering the height of some of those mountains, you'd probably do better to smash an asteroid into the nearby ocean and raise a wall of water to put out the fires. Then everybody can suffocate from the dust cloud. Hypothetically speaking of course.
