The old 747-200 from Evergreen needed a replacement, but I think a 747-8 would have been better, more capacity for water/chemicals.

Imagine if you saw this flying at 1000 AGL with water pouring out the back.

Lest remember it would cost a lot more money to have a new plane the whole point is this is a old plane that either goes to scrap or is used to fight fires

A 747-8 would have more capacity to combat fires because of its bigger cargo capacity. But it would also need more time to be refilled with water and to be refuelled.
Maybe the 747-400 was the best option.
