10 Tanker Air Carrier is a company owned privately by Rick Hatton, Stan Burnstein and Rob Coretz and based at the Southern California Logistics Airport, formerly the George Air Force Base.

President/CEO of 10 Tanker Air Carrier and former United States Marine Corps Pilot, Rick Hatton, will explain the research and development process that lead to the conversion, to visitors at Plane Crazy Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Mojave Air and SpacePort Board Room.

We wish it were possible to have Rick bring the DC-10, but with the price of fuel, he will either bring his Lancair or 1947 Republic SeaBee! He will have many photos and videos of Tanker 10 in operation! Mighty impressive to see!

The Tankers are modified McDonnell Douglas DC-10 airliners that can carry 11,600 gallons of water or chemicals in its exterior belly tank. It can drop its entire load on a fire in 8 seconds or slower depending on the need. A single drop from a Tanker 910 is equal to four drops from a C-130 Hercules military transport.

Wen Painter will be on hand in the Voyager Restaurant to sign Tax-exempt forms for pilots!
